Commenting on the event, Charalambos Constantinou, Partner, Head of Advisory Services, EY Cyprus, said: “At a time when Cyprus is seeking to strengthen its role as a global, maritime, energy and logistics centre, the Annual Capital Link Cyprus Shipping Forum plays a vital role in bringing all the interested parties together to discuss opportunities and challenges that lie ahead. EY stands at the forefront of the Cypriot and global shipping industry having invested heavily in developing services we offer, both as auditors and as advisors. It is therefore only natural that we support this important initiative by Capital Link.”
