Few people, and in particular economists and politicians,  have ever got the message with respect to the multitude of advantages to the world economy, despite the…famous or infamous American presidential maxim: “it’s the economy stupid…”, vis-à-vis alleviating the hassle of austerity the international public is subjected  these days – even European countries’ debts and all that jazz, if appropriately, the “tool” of Shipping gets in and things become ship-shape! The Shipping Clusters are second to none!

John N. Faraclas will try to explain in this forthcoming event, organised by UCLan’s* School of Business & Management under the Open Seminar Series: Practitioners’ Perspectives, on the Island of Aphrodite, at the Large Auditorium at UCLan Cyprus, Pyla Campus in Larnaka on the 7th of October between 15:00-16:00 hours. What a chance to begin with saving and upturning of a small nation’s future, that of Cyprus! Coincidentally, the nest three days it’s WISTA’s AGM and International Conference, so Cyprus is the focal point of the World!

Indeed “It’s Shipping Stupid, ” to paraphrase with a different perspective that: It’s All About Shipping!

This is the second international cooperation between UCLan, under Prof. Panikkos Poutziouris and Dr. Loukas G. Glyptis immense support and meticulous organisation with www.allaboutshipping.co.uk – The first one was last April in London’s Hellenic Centre; viewers can log on  here and see this relevant shipping event.
