Level playing field
Netherlands Maritime Technology stands for a worldwide level playing field. The organisation discusses with strategic partners about subjects like the Jones Act in the USA, Spanish Tax Lease, and Local Content Requirements in China. These partners are the European Commission via EU Brussels Office, SEA Europe, Dutch Maritime Network, FME, and the Dutch government. The main goal is to arrange a level playing field, so every company in every country can do business in the same conditions.
Netherlands Maritime Technology serves the interests of the Dutch shipyards, suppliers and service providers linked to issues such as emission regulations like NOx and SOx. Furthermore the organisation is leading in the discussion about harmonisation of class rules.
The Dutch maritime technology industry is an innovative and high-quality sector. A skilled and well-educated workforce is therefore paramount. To match education with daily practice, Netherlands Maritime Technology has a close cooperation with Dutch universities.
