The Lloyd’s List Podcast: The View from Athens

Listen to the latest edition of Lloyd’s List’s weekly podcast — your weekly briefing on the stories shaping shipping

How do the Greek shipowners feel this year has gone and what’s keeping them up at night when they look to 2020? The podcast lands in Athens this week for the annual sequined festival of camp showbiz excess and shipping excellence that is the Greek Shipping Awards. Joining Lloyd’s List editor Richard Meade to dissect the fortunes of shipping’s most vibrant of markets are our two resident Greeks, Athens correspondent Nigel Lowry and London-based reporter Anastassios Adamopoulos


WHERE the Greeks lead in shipping, others tend to follow. So the opportunity to dissect the sentiment, hopes and fears driving the mighty Athens shipowning community is not an opportunity to be missed. 

Once a year the great and the good of Greece’s still dominant shipping sector gather for a party like no other and the podcast this week comes to you from the sidelines with a somewhat noisy discussion about what’s driving the Piraeus party set.

Gathered round the microphone with Lloyd’s List Editor Richard Meade as the Greek Shipping Awards get underway this week are podcast regular and London Greek Anastassios Adamopoulos and our Athens correspondent and host of the Greek Shipping Awards, Nigel Lowry.

The team discuss the fortunes and failings of the Greek owners this year and get the crystal ball out to take a look forward to the prospects facing them in 2020 and beyond. They also analyse what the recent slew of political rhetoric from Greek shipping minister Ioannis Plakiotakis might say about shipping’s political debate for next year and where the Union of Greek Shipowners might fit into the big debates yet to come about climate regulation and potential market-based mechanisms.

A warning in advance of listening to this week’s edition — the Athens team were discussing the weighty issues of the day while the Greek Awards were setting up around them for the 1,200 guests, so there is a little background noise to contend with. Welcome to Athens!
