We see an important role for our industry when it comes to solving important social issues. For example, rising sea levels, sustainable shipping, tapping into clean energy sources and, last but not least, defense and security. These are the issues of our time, and all these issues are about water worldwide. In short, the future is at sea and the time is ripe to name the maritime manufacturing industry and its knowledge base as strategic, and to act accordingly.
