Cyprus Shipping Chamber and Cyprus Union of Shipowners to merge

The Cyprus Shipping Chamber (CSC) and the Cyprus Union of Shipowners have approved a merger agreement to unify the two associations in order to promote closer cooperation between the two entities.

“The aim of this effort is, through the merging of the CSC and CUS, to create a new unified association representing Cyprus shipowners, shipmanagers and the wider Shipping Industry at large, in Cyprus and internationally, on all policy, operational and labour shipping matters, administered by one secretariat,” the CSC said in a statement.

The outline of the merger agreement have been approved by directors of the two associations and will soon be presented in detail to CSC/CUS members respectively, for consideration and subsequent formal approval.

“With the Cyprus Shipping Chamber completing this year, 30 years of multifaceted and active work in the service of Cyprus shipping, this is indeed a very important development and promising opportunity for the future of Shipping in Cyprus,” CSC added.
