Denmark and China strengthen green maritime ties
A new cooperation agreement on green maritime technology and shipbuilding creates the framework for a stronger and intensified cooperation between Denmark and China.
On 25 April 2014, a new cooperation agreement on green maritime technology and shipbuilding was signed by the Danish ambassador to China and the Minister of the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. The agreement was concluded during Denmark’s state visit to China in April.
The cooperation agreement creates the framework for a stronger and intensified cooperation between Danish suppliers of green maritime solutions and Chinese shipyards.
The world’s largest shipbuilding nation
China is the largest shipbuilding nation in the world and is, as a result, of great importance to Danish suppliers and Danish shipowners. Several Danish companies are already established with production, service centres or sales offices in China.
The agreement supports this development and aims at creating new forms of cooperation that will increase Danish-Chinese trade for the benefit of both Danish and Chinese companies, in the long term.
As a first step, the cooperation agreement will run for a two-year period.
