After a Covid-induced hiatus of four years, Greece is playing host to the shipping world again.

It welcomes thousands of maritime players descending on Athens for Posidonia 2022 from its established position of strength.

The pandemic did nothing to endanger Hellenes’ leadership as the world’s top shipowning nation.

According to data collected by the Greek Shipping Cooperation Committee in London, the size of the Greek-controlled merchant fleet has climbed by 4% since the last Posidonia in 2018, to a record of 355m dwt.
