PortSEurope – Reference – Malta Marittima – April 27, 2018 Malta Marittima is a Government of Malta agency that was established to bring industry and government stakeholders together so as to focus and promote the continued and enhanced development of the marine and maritime industries in the Maltese Islands. Malta Marittima is composed of a steering committee often Directors in all; five of which are
nominated from within the public sector, viz., Transport Malta, Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture, Malta Freeport Corporation, Regulator for Energy and Water Systems, Malta Enterprise; and five others which are appointed by government through a consultation process with industry stakeholders. There is a wide range of companies and organisations already active in maritime industry; services vary broadly and include financial (e.g. insurance), yachting and marina management, consulting and legal, logistics, transportation, and aquaculture. The grouping of these activities holds potential for establishing a number of closely-knit maritime clusters. Maritime clusters have been promoted globally for several years and the European Commission sees maritime clusters as having a pivotal role in the strengthening and development of the maritime sector. The Prime sectoral clusters proposed are as follows: Maritime Commercial Cluster – Legal, Financial, Insurance, Broking, Chartering, Ship Owners, Surveyors, Adjusters, Crew Management Logistics Cluster – Freight Forwarders, Terminal Operators, Ship agents, Warehouse Operators, Bunkering. Marine Engineering Cluster – Marine Engineering, ICT, Ship Repair, Technical Services Mechanical and Electrical, Sailing and Motorboat clubs, Marinas, Boat Sales/Chartering. Fisheries and Aquaculture Cluster – Fishing Boat Owners, Fishing Coops, Fish farming, Aquaculture, Fish Processing, Fisheries Management and Biotechnology Energy Cluster – Oil & Gas exploitation and servicing, Offshore renewable, Emissions The latest news from Malta Marittima can be accessed here.
