Denmark and China cooperate on e-navigation

Denmark and China have signalled their intention to support increased cooperation between the countries in maritime activities, particularly in the area of electronic navigation.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}One of the most recent activities in this regard has been the inauguration of a joint seminar in China organised by the Danish Maritime Authority (DMA) and China Maritime Safety Administration (China MSA) to explore e-navigation initiatives.

​“China is an important partner with regard to the digital agenda, including global e-navigation solutions. The Chinese-Danish cooperation enables us to exchange knowledge and experiences,” said Bjørn Borbye Pedersen, director of e-navigation at the DMA.

“We have just expanded our cooperation agreement on e-navigation to also include China, so the seminar comes at an opportune moment.”

Aside from Chinese and Danish experiences gained from various e-navigation projects, the three-day seminar will also cover topics such as as autonomous ships and the role of maritime authorities in the continuing digitalisation of the industry.

Joining the DMA and China MSA at the seminar will be representatives from China Shipbuilding Information Center, China Classification Society, and other relevant research institutions.{/mprestriction}
