Interview with Lars Johanson, CEO, Svenska Skeppshypotek.
Svenska Skeppshypotek supports DSM19 as Silver Sponsor. What contributed to make this decision?
The great opportunity to meet the Shipping Industry, gathered in one place, in our own home town. And of course the possibility of meeting stable and foreseeing shipowners.
What are your expectations for DSM19?
We do hope that this gathering of the active shipping industry strengthens the positive shipping agenda of the Swedish Government. From both an environmental and an infrastructure point of view.
What is your best memory from DSM17?
The feeling of positive thinking, how the Shipping Industry looks forward, to possibilities of earning money alongside limiting and lowering environmental impact.
What do you find are the opportunities and the biggest challenges in the Shipping Industry today?
To strengthen the positive thinking around the possibilities of the Nordic Shipping Industry to be an active part in limiting and lowering global environmental impact.
How would you describe DSM in one word?
And finally, do you prefer a sail or a motor boat for recreation, and why so?
Sailing – of course. The sound of the wind, the smell of salt water and the Swedish westcoast archipelago in summer, nothing can be compared.
