Greece 2024

Greek shipping has been a reliable constant in the economic life of Greece and in the vanguard of world shipping for as long as anyone can remember. Despite the generational challenge of decarbonisation, by some reckonings, Greek shipowners are in a stronger position today than at any time since the days of the ‘Golden Greek’ generation led by Aristotle Onassis and Stavros Niarchos. Visitors to Greece’s biennial Posidonia will no doubt find the nation’s shipowners optimistic of a golden future, too. As our special report observes, there are also positive vibes around Greece’s shipbuilding and repair sector, while the wider maritime cluster continues gathering strength.
