Big Step Forward for Turkish-Dutch Maritime Co-Operation

The rapid growth of Turkish ports and maritime sectors created interesting opportunities for bilateral co-operation between Turkish and Dutch maritime companies.

New product-market combinations in the fields of sustainable shipping, port development and fleet renewal can lead to mutual benefits and growth, announced Maritime by Holland.

Mr. Keller, Ambassador of the Netherlands in Turkey, said: ”We have invested many years in our maritime friendship. Now it is time to act in the area of maritime infrastructure and sustainable shipping”.

The study ‘Maritime Turkey: Market Research’ was presented to the ambassador by mr. Terry van Velzen, chairman of the ‘Maritime Hotspots Commission Istanbul’ and Director business development at Imtech Marine BV.

This study from Maritime by Holland describes the impressive growth of the Turkish maritime transport sector, as well as new opportunities for Dutch engineers and consultants, manufacturing industries and logistic partners in this emerging and promising market. It gives new insights into the double digit growth of the Turkish ports sector, its privatization processes and government dynamics as well.
