In view of the social distancing measures, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the shipping chamber is continuing its business functions through available digital platforms, following continuously the guidance of the Cyprus government with the same determination and responsibility, since the beginning of the pandemic outbreak.
During the general meeting, the actions and activities of the chamber for the year 2019 were presented, which as mentioned it was a milestone year for the chamber, marking 30 years since its establishment in 1989.
Philippos Philis, president, Cyprus Shipping Chamber, made a special reference to the outgoing year, to the important success of Cyprus shipping with the re-approval of the Cyprus shipping taxation system by the European Commission at the end of 2019.
This important achievement was the result of the close cooperation of the Shipping Deputy Ministry with the shipping chamber and the shipping industry in general. In this regard, Philis stressed that the chamber aims at an even closer communication and cooperation with the Shipping Ministry and other business associates for further success.
