The governments of Denmark and China have concluded a cooperation agreement which will see the two countries cooperate in the development of 'green' maritime technologies, as well as creating stronger links in the field of shipbuilding.

The deal was sealed by the Danish Ministry of Business and Growth and the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, and signed in connection with the State visit of Her Majesty the Queen and His Royal Highness the Prince Consort of Denmark to China, in the presence of the Danish Royal Couple and the President of China H.E. Xi Jinping.

"Blue Denmark’s relations with China build upon 40 years’ cooperation since the signing of our first maritime cooperation agreement in 1974," said Andreas Nordseth, director-general of the Danish Maritime Authority (DMA).

"Today, Danish shipping and Danish companies have a strong presence in China. With this new agreement on green technology and ship building China and Denmark take yet another step and aim towards maritime technology."

The agreement establishes the framework of new cooperation between Danish suppliers of green maritime solutions and Chinese shipyards.

DMA notes that several Danish companies are already established with production, service centres or sales offices in China, and that this cooperation agreement should support this development and create new forms of cooperation that can, in the long term, increase Danish-Chinese trade.
