Shipowners see opportunities in new plan

DanishShipping have commented on the government’s recently submitted 2025-plan with focus on the economic space available, which the government predicts can reach 33 billion DKK. According to DanishShipping, there are good opportunities for an extension of the seamen's tax.

The expansion of seaman's tax to cover the entire maritime offshore area was one of 52 recommendations from the maritime growth team. And that is one of Denmark's most important wishes. And with the government's new 2025-plan, DanishShipping see good opportunities to get the proposal implemented and point out that Dansk Folkeparti is also supporting an extension.

"First and foremost, it's important that the government's 2025-plan has growth policy at its core. In this context, it is natural to prioritize the Blue Denmark and, in particular, the expansion of seaman's tax, which was clearly recommended by the government's growth team. There are several factors that can ensure that we, for example, in the construction of wind turbines can maintain Danish seamen on Danish ships. Because this is our clear goal," says Anne H. Steffensen, CEO of DanishShipping.

Today's initiative aims to increase the expected average GDP growth from approx. 1,5 to 2 percent a year to 2025. The government will find the road to increased growth through a two-legged strategy consisting of increased employment and higher productivity.
