We are blessed by the fact that we have an opening to the Black Sea, that we have a network of shipyards, that Constanța is very important port in Europe, and we are connected through the Danube River to the center of Europe. We are a major area of interest, and not by chance, companies in the Netherlands have chosen to organize this event in Constanța, Ahoy Rotterdam being the largest fair and exhibition organizer in this country. Here we have a large part of the shipping industry here. I am convinced that this event will be successful, but the fact that we have already reached the XIIth edition speaks for itself”.
