At the meeting, the Minister announced that the Blue Denmark needs to be better promoted and thus a display window for Danish maritime strengths is created.
The initiative is named Danish Maritime Days and will consist of a number of maritime events which are to show what the Blue Denmark stands for.
An important element will be the Danish Maritime Forum with an ambition of becoming a global summit held in Denmark and intended to bring together maritime decision-makers from all over the world.
Danish Maritime Days has been widely supported by Danish maritime decision-makers and is an important element of the follow-up on the Plan for Growth in the Blue Denmark. Danish Maritime Days has been developed in co-operation between the Ministry of Business and Growth, the Danish Shipowners' Association and Danish Maritime and will be carried out in close co-operation with the Blue Denmark in its entirety.
In 2014, Danish Maritime Days will be held in week 41.
