MAY 26, 2015 — Denmark’s Crown Prince Frederik is to attend this year’s Danish Maritime Forum. To be held October 7-8 at the new Copenhagen cruise terminal, the prestigious invitation-only forum is the flagship event of Danish Maritime Days, which runs October 5-9.
“We are very proud to announce that the Danish Crown Prince will attend the Danish Maritime Forum. It emphasizes his great interest in the maritime industry and the positive difference it can make for the world,” says Michael Soested, Head of Secretariat of Danish Maritime Days.
At the Danish Maritime Forum, the Crown Prince will have the opportunity to gain a comprehensive insight in some of the megatrends that could have a major influence on the global maritime industry and international trade in the future.
The Crown Prince is very familiar with the sea. He is a former member of the “Frogman Corps” — the Royal Danish Navy’s special operations forces, a skilled sailor and Rear Admiral in the Royal Danish Navy.
At the opening of last year’s Danish Maritime Forum, the Crown Prince stated that, “the maritime industry plays an essential role both for the global economy at large and for the wellbeing of people around the globe.”
Danish Maritime Days is a public-private partnership between Danish Maritime, The Danish Shipowners’ association and the Danish Maritime Authority supported by the Danish Maritime Fund, D/S Orients Foundation, the Danish Ministry of Business and Growth, the Hempel Foundation and the Torm Foundation.
