The Greek shipping industry has a prominent position in global maritime transports. It is one of the key pillars of the Greek economy and along with tourism constitutes its two most significant export sectors. In this study, we report the main developments of the Greek-controlled fleet, the evolution of Greek maritime transport receipts and the prospects of the main factors affecting those receipts. Subsequently, we make an estimate of the future path of freight rates. Then, based on those estimates and on growth trends of the size of the Greek fleet, we project future net maritime transport receipts when trickle into the Greek economy. Τhe results of the study confirm the key contribution of the Greek maritime industry to the recovery of the Greek economy.
