Your Excellency Mr Yasuhiro Shimizu, Ambassador of Japan to the Hellenic Republic,
Distinguished Mr George Pateras, President of the Hellenic Chamber of Shipping,
Distinguished delegates and guests,
Ladies and gentlemen,
As President of the Piraeus Marine Club, and on behalf of the Board of Directors, allow me to take this opportunity to extend a very warm welcome to all of our distinguished guests who are attending today’s Working Luncheon, with Guest Speaker His Excellency Mr Yasuhiro Shimizu, Ambassador of Japan to the Hellenic Republic.
Your Excellency, we would like to express our deepest gratitude for accepting our invitation and having you here today, at the premises of our historical Club!
A Club providing an ideal setting for an event of such importance, which always had and will continue having strong associations with landmark events in the history of Shipping, such as keynote speeches, such as today’s highly topical issue: “Japan and its Foreign Policy”.
His Excellency was appointed in Greece in August 2017,
after having held and served at various significant posts, and aims at strengthening the relations between Japan and Greece, a fact which we obviously support, since both countries enjoy good relations in all fields and cooperate closely.
We are all looking forward in hearing his point of view on today’s critical topic.
To today’s distinguished Guest Speaker, delegates and audience who have joined us, I bid you once again a very warm welcome !!!
We are indeed honored to have you here with us, thus making this Luncheon a truly international one, which I am confident will be a great success and will provide impactful outcome !
Allow me at this point to mention, that this year our Club celebrates its 50th Anniversary since it’s establishment in 1968, and upon this occasion our Anniversary Edition with a Collectable and Luxurious Album, will be released and presented at the Gala Dinner, due to take place on Friday 9th of November at Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center.
Last but not least, I would like to acknowledge our sponsors for their valuable support:
- SHIPPING COMPANY, DRYLOG LTD.
• FRANMAN, Mr COSTIS J. FRANGOULIS,and
• MARVIN SHIPPING SERVICES INC.
I wish everyone a successful and fruitful Luncheon.
Thank you very much for your attention !
