Due to the COVID-19 developments and restrictions, we have to postpone the event on Promotion of the Dutch Flag, which was planned on March 26. We are busy searching for a new date, and will inform you accordingly.
RMSC members value the rich heritage of the Dutch maritime sector. The Netherlands’ shipowners are especially strong in the sectors short-sea shipping, offshore (services) as well as workships such as heavy lift, dredgers, tugs and specials.
The Dutch ship register and flag appeals to both Dutch and international shipowners. Recently the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Watermanagement started a campaign to promote the Dutch flag and its accessibility, in order to grow the Dutch fleet. www.nlflag.nl
This is beneficial for our great maritime cluster (incl. maritime services!), economic activity and employment but also for the Dutch position in international organisations such as the IMO. Our innovative maritime sector and drive towards a sustainable industry influences the sector globally and hence the future of our seas.
During the Dutch flag event Marstrat, the Royal Association of Netherlands Shipowners KVNR and STC will join forces to provide you from different perspectives the benefits of the Dutch ship register and the opportunities we see. What is the latest on Dutch tonnage tax and Brexit? Are we internationally competing on a level playing field with competitive flag registration? A prominent Dutch shipowner will share experiences with us. Guaranteed a great informative event exclusively for members of the RMSC and KVNR.
