PANEL IDEA

This year’s Maritime Industries panel will be entirely devoted to the potential of Polish-French cooperation in shipbuilding services. In the last two decades, the Polish shipbuilding industry has generally assumed extensive cooperation with North and West European countries – mostly Norway and Germany or Finland, Denmark and Netherland. Regardless of the scale of success of these cooperation endeavors, the key to developing the shipbuilding industry in Poland will be to find an alternative direction for cooperation in the upcoming years. In the opinion of a part of the Polish environment, France has the potential to guarantee further development to Polish companies, as well as their safety, by guaranteeing
a portfolio of contacts and commissions. The French shipbuilding industry is generally based on the production of modern cruise liners and military crafts. In contrast, the Polish shipbuilding industry is based on modern and highly complex ferries, specialized units, including offshore as well as specialized subcontracting. Opportunities have emerged to stimulate further cooperation between the Polish and French shipbuilding industries. This year’s Gdynia Maritime Economy Forum can serve as an impulse, as among the invited guests are high-rank representatives of the Groupement des Industries de Construction et Activités Navales (GICAN), an association of major French companies (more than 170 companies and institutions) that design and manufacture ships and weaponry, design and manufacture maritime technologies based on renewable energy, as well as develop port infrastructure and conserve the marine environment.

Apart from GICAN representatives and the French shipbuilding industry, Mr. Christophe Tytgat, Secretary General of the Shipyard's and Maritime Equipment Association (SEA Europe) as well as representatives of the most important Polish shipyards: Remontowa Shipbuilding, CRIST and PGZ Stocznia Wojenna were invited to the panel.

We believe that this year’s Maritime Industries panel will serve as an important impulse for the further development of the Polish and French shipbuilding industry partnership.
