BIMCO to open office in Athens

The Baltic and International Maritime Council (BIMCO) is opening an office in Athens later this year.

The office aims to create a stronger and closer dialogue with Greek members of the association and to non-members.

Currently, 152 Greek shipowners are members of BIMCO.

Anastasios Papagiannopoulos, principal of common progress, said: “Opening an office in Athens is an important step to make BIMCO even more member-focused.

“There is a lot of regulation coming [in] and being a BIMCO member will help Greek shipowners get the advice and information they need to make decisions about their business.”

BIMCO said it is in the process of hiring someone to head up the Athens office. They will report to BIMCO’s head of membership and business development, Erik Jensby.
