The Minster for Transport and Infrastructure, Ian Borg said that over the last few years the merchant shipping register has increased by 8%, reaching a total of 75 million gross tonnes, which has led to Malta strengthening its position as one of the largest registers in Europe and the sixth in the world.  During a news conference, that gave details of the Malta Maritime Summit to be held in Malta this October, Mr Borg said that over a period of five years there was an increase of 2,000 ships registered under the Maltese flag. Apart from these ships, there has also been an increase in the registration of super yachts.

Mr John A. Gauci Maistre, a promotor of the Malta Maritime Summit said that the summit which will take place between 1 – 5 October will give an exclusive opportunity to more influential people in the international maritime sector to meet and discuss the maritime policy of the EU and its global impact. He explained that the summit was organized for the first time in 2016 and will be addressing issues such as logistics, automation, pollution, digitalization and the effects of Brexit.
