Nicolas Bornozis, President of Capital Link stated:
“We are humbled, thrilled and honored to share the news that on Thursday, April 19, 2018, the day before the “3rd Annual Capital Link International Shipping – China” we signed a Memorandum of Strategic Cooperation between Capital Link and the Shanghai Pudong Government (Shanghai Pudong New Area Commission of Commerce - International Shipping Service Office).
China has been the locomotive for global shipping and Shanghai and Pudong are already major hubs for the global shipping industry. Recognizing the fact that the future belongs to China a lot of shipowners establish a presence in Pudong.
For the last three years, Capital Link organizes a major international forum in Shanghai-Pudong in partnership with Singhai Marine Services and Columbia Shipmanagement. This forum brings to Shanghai-Pudong major international shipowners, financiers and other industry participants who come to exchange views with Chinese leaders on critical topics of the shipping industry.
Capital Link is known for having direct access to shipowners, investors, financiers and decision makers around the world and we will utilize our global marketing platform to attract more international business to Shanghai-Pudong. In the context of this Strategic Cooperation, we will also continue to hold our Annual International Forum in Pudong which we plan to expand further with the support of the Pudong Government.
We are honored by the confidence of the Pudong Government to enter into this Memorandum of Strategic Cooperation with Capital Link.
I would like to acknowledge with special thanks the role and contribution of our partner Mr. Terence Zhao, President of Singhai Marine Services, for the conclusion of this agreement.”
