The agreement is a decisive step for bilateral relations with great benefits for Greek shipping and shipbuilding equipment.

Minister Varvitsiotis shared that the South Korean shipyards deliver a Greek-owned ship every four days on the average; therefore, the participation of Greek manufacturers of shipbuilding materials is important in building these ships, not only the Greek-owned but also all ships built in Korea. He announced that the main priority is to clear the way for Greek exports to Korea and increase the participation of shipping revenue in the Greek economy.
