Cuxhavener Nachrichten (21. März 2015): "Durch Spezialwissen Seeleuten Chancen eröffnen."

Nach einer erschöpfenden Woche sind wir nun mit der 2015 North Sea International Maritime Conference fertig! Wir hatten unglaublich talentierte und renommierte Redner, die engagiert und mit sehr viel Liebe zum Thema für die Besucher da waren. Wir haben viel gelernt und diskutiert und bedanken uns bei unserem Gastgeber Herrn Weber und seiner Mannschaft für die professionelle und einwandfreie Aufnahme im frisch renovierten Hochdonner.

Weitere Berichte mit zahlreichen Bildern folgen.

Über die Auftaktveranstaltung am 19. März 2015 berichtete schon die Cuxhavener Nachrichten:

English: "Creating opportunities for seamen through expertise. North Sea International Maritime Conference opened in the presence of the American consul. CUXHAVEN. Even the American consul in Hamburg, Michael W. Gray, was present when the State Maritime College opened the first North Sea International Maritime Conference on Thursday amidst the attendance of international guests. With this, at the same time, the foundation was laid for a partnership with three American maritime universities.

"With the newly established German American Maritime Institute, led by Attorney Erik Kravets and Captain Michael Gross (both instructors at the Maritime College), the exchange of students between Cuxhaven and the partner schools in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Long Beach (California) will be promoted with the goal of providing young seafarers better language capabilities and knowledge in the field of maritime commercial law. Both is of great importance given the difficult situation of German shipping, emphasized Attorney Audrey Kravets, the wife and co-founding partner of the Cuxhaven institute.

"The American consul was delighted after a journey on a Wulf tugboat on a bright and sunny day and also by the geographic situation of Cuxhaven and its port facilities, which Harbor Business Association general manager Hans-Peter Zint illustrated in fluent English during a subsequent reception at the auditorium of the State Maritime College. Afterwards, Lord Mayor Dr. Ulrich Getsch emphasized the connection of the American partner city New Bedford."
