Abstract:
The real Wealth of Nations rests with Shipping in its entirety. Life comes from the Sea, conversely Shipping has the potential to offer a sustainable future to everybody, to all nations, no matter the problems. Just imagine the world without the Sea-factor. Given the above, all current Cyprus’ issues, if appropriately tackled via Shipping, can make the difference from the current situation.
