European shipowners and naval constructors ask the EU to pass from the words to the facts in the contrast to practical commercial the treacherous ones of Far East

ECSA and SEA Europe, we ask Europe to send to a fort message to I support of a free trade, fair and based on the rules

The shipowning societies and the European navalmeccaniche companies invite the EU to pass from the words to the facts in commercial practical topic of contrast to the treacherous ones put into effect in Far East, in particular through important financings publics distributed in China and South Korea, and to act in favor of the creation of a total situation of parity of conditions.

Referring to recent declarations of Cecilia Malström, European commissioner to the Commerce, against such practical conducts in Far East and in support of the interests of the shipowners and the European naval constructors, the European Community Shipowners' Associations (ECSA), the organization that represents the European shipowners, and SEA Europe, the cluster that group the associations of the naval constructors and the producers of equipments for the marine industry, have manifested appreciation for such words, but they have emphasized the necessity to undertake concrete and determined actions in order to contrast these practical, as - they have emphasized - oriented commercial conditions at the market, a commerce based on rules and the opening of the markets they are essential in order to allow with the European companies of the shipowning and navalmeccanico field to operate to international level.

"The most recent measures than support of South Korea - it has evidenced the general secretary of SEA Europe, Christophe Tytgat - are clearly an example of treacherous and which forged competition. Artificially creating a question through aids of State, unfortunately South Korea has contributed to the serious excess of today's ability in the construction of mercantile ships and the marine transport, with dramatic consequences and all-out for all the operators of the market, in the first place for shipbuilding naval the European and then also for the European shipowners and the entire chain of value of the marine field of Europe. Now - it has emphasized Tytgat - Europe must supervise so that the same treacherous commercial practical with the same potential devastating effects are not replied in other segments of the shipbuilding and the shipping".

Also the general secretary of the ECSA has aimed the finger in particular against Korea: "the plan of reforms of South Korea - Martin Dorsman has explained - is a lot alarming for the shipowners and the shipbuilding industry European. These measures - it has specified - create disparity conditions, hinder the free and fair access to international the marine transport and contribute to the total sovracapacità. Part of this plan - Dorsman has remembered - is also time to assure cargo volumes for the ships clappers Korean flag, what that constitutes a measure of safeguard of the flag of particularly protezionistico character. In a moment in which the tendencies towards protectionism they are increasing - it has concluded the general secretary of the ECSA - we ask Europe to send to a fort message to I support of a free trade, fair and based on the rules".
