The ECSA is not at all in agreement with the conclusions of the relationship of the ITF on the subsidies to the shipping

The European shipowning association questions the scope of the job and the adopted methodology in order to realize it

The association of the European shipowners at all does not agree with the conclusions drawn from the International Transport Forum (ITF) in its relationship on the subsidies to the field of the marine transport, conclusions - it has specified the European Community Shipowners' Associations (ECSA) in its comment to the outcomes of the document - that they regard mainly the guidelines of the European Union in matter of aids of State and their application in the States of the EU and that recommendations put in doubt the effectiveness of the aids proposing in order to obtain improvements.

From part its, to the opposite one, the ECSA declares the own firm conviction "that the guidelines in matter of aids of State are an absolutely effective instrument in order to safeguard and to strengthen the European field of the shipping within highly competitive a total scene". The shipowning association has emphasized that its point of view "is supported by banns as the study of Oxford Economics on the economic contribution of the marine industry of the EU the economy, to the increase and the occupation", analysis - we remember - that was commissioned by the same ECSA(on 27 February 2017). The ECSA moreover has made reference also to the appraisal of the EU commission on the effectiveness of the guidelines on the aids of State, than - it has evidenced the association - "they reach the conclusion that the guidelines in matter of aids of State must be maintained".

"The EU commission - it has observed the ECSA - is moreover examinee carefully the new or updated national measures, that they demand the approval of the Head office of the Competition before they can take effect. In this way - it has pointed out the shipowning association - any distortion of the competition between the Member States of the EU is avoided".

The ECSA has specified that besides to question the scope of the relationship of the ITF of it puts in doubt also the adopted methodology in order to realize it. "The main defect - it has explained the association - is that the total nature of the field is not reflected in the analysis, that is concentrated exclusively on the practical ones of the EU". To such purpose the ECSA has made reference under consideration commissioned to Deloitte that - the shipowning association has remembered - is lead confronting the EU with five European competitors and that - second the ECSA - "it is essential in order to draw founded conclusions"(on 28 February 2017). "Its conclusions on the effectiveness of the guidelines in matter of aids of State, for example with regard to the opportunities of job for the marine ones of the EU - it has found the shipowning organization - would have had to induce to a more groundbreaking search".

"Regarding the occupation - it has still emphasized the ECSA - it is essential to take into consideration the fundamental differences between the labor markets of marine of the Member States of the EU. Such analyses lack completely in the relationship of the ITF".
