Shipping, Key Ingredient of EU’s Africa Agenda

European shipowners strongly believe that maritime services are enablers of trade and development, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa. This is the core message European Community Shipowners' Associations (ECSA) sent earlier this week in a letter to EU Commissioner for Trade Cecilia Malmström, inviting her to include maritime transport services in the EU Africa agenda. “Efficient maritime transport is critical to the region’s trade and economic growth. Shipping is the backbone of the mobile supply chain which ties European and African economies together”, says Patrick Verhoeven, ECSA Secretary General, “We need to ensure that European shipping is able to keep its strong presence in the region and the EU representations should continue to play an important role in supporting this”, he added. ECSA recently organised a stakeholder roundtable to discuss the challenges and opportunities shipping companies face in Africa. European shipping companies are important partners to African governments and businesses and ensure that the countries are connected to world trade.
