ECSA published strategy document for 2019-2024

The ECSA published the “Strategic priorities for EU-shipping policy 2019-2024

In this document ECSA refers to a changing world driven by challenges such as climate change, social questions, barriers to free trade and security concerns. ECSA elaborates in this document on the need for free and open international shipping markets, maintaining competitiveness through existing guidelines on state aid, calling for global rules to avoid reducing competiveness, innovation and digitalization, the completion of the internal market for (shortsea) shipping and building and maintaining the successes of the Shipping Social Sector Dialogue.

ISRA regrets that the ECSA does not address sound and safe ship recycling as one of the key elements in the sustainable shipping industry. No reference whatsoever is made in this field. ISRA is of the opinion that sound and safe recycling should be an integral part of the sustainability policies of ECSA and the individual ship-owners.
