Cyprus Shipping Moving Digital
On October 21st, 2020, the Deputy Minister for Shipping Vasilis Demetriades stated during a virtual shipping conference that “the Covid-19 crisis has severely impacted the shipping industry and its operations, but unexpectedly resulted to the rapid advancement of technology. The future is digital and over the last two months we have fast-forwarded 5 to perhaps even 10 years in the evolution of how we work.”
The Shipping Deputy Ministry is actually in the process of formulating a road map that will digitalize all its services.
In our view digitalization is very welcome and this will further increase the importance of the Cypriot Shipping Industry.
