Created jointly by Portugal’s Ministry of the Sea and Shipping Innovation (creator of London International Shipping Week) it will bring together Portuguese Government policy-makers with a wide range of maritime sector stakeholders to focus on the region’s shipping, in all its different aspects.

…and much, much more!
The Minister of the Sea said:
“We look forward to welcoming the global shipping industry to Lisbon in September to meet and network with the leaders of the Portuguese Maritime sector, in the context of the Portuguese Government’s policy to promote the Ocean, and linked to several international maritime events that will take place in Portugal in 2018.”
