Greek Shipping a Global Force:

Greece, a country of about 11 million people, controls by far the biggest share -- nearly 20% -- of the world's merchant fleet by tonnage and has a long tradition as a maritime nation. Greek shipowners who compete on a global scale have a track record as astute operators and asset traders. Shipping is a significant contributor to the Greek economy mainly through the foreign currency inflows.

Greek shipping has now successfully become a key participant in the U.S. capital markets. Since 2005, the majority of U.S. listings in shipping have been by Greek owned or managed shipping companies.

Companies presenting at the Forum:

The Forum also includes presentations by Greece's top government officials for economic policy, privatization and investments, the Chairman of the Athens Exchange, as well as corporate leaders, including those of ALAPIS, Hellenic Telecommunications (NYSE: OTE), Hellenic Petroleum and others.

Deutsche Telecom, First Data Corporation, Lockheed Martin, Microsoft Corporation and Mistras Group will also make presentations on their experience of investing and doing business in Greece and the wider area of Southeastern Europe, in a panel moderated by Reed Smith.
