Bremen shows its great maritime heart

BREMEN. In late September/early October Bremen was dominated by the maritime industry for almost a week. Firstly, the “16th Bremen Shipping Congress” took place at its new location – City University of Applied Sciences (HSB) – under the theme of “Developments, Opportunities and Prospects of Maritime Human Resources Management”. Afterwards, Bremen and Bremerhaven celebrated German Shipping Day with this year’s slogan “Sustainable Shipping: Together, Clear, Clean!” Bremen’s port senator Dr Claudia Schilling (photo) was delighted that the event, under the patronage of President of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier, enabled this city on the River Weser to show its great maritime heart. Schilling concluded – shipping is “an integral part” of both Bremen’s and Bremerhaven’s profile.
