The Danish Maritime Authority (DMA) widens the international work on digitalization and e-navigation and enters into a cooperation agreement with South Korea, Sweden, Australia and China.

Up until today, Denmark has had cooperation agreements (MoU) on e-navigation with South Korea and Sweden, but in order to strengthen the focus on digitalization in the maritime sector, the cooperation is now widened to include Australia and China.
On the morning of June 4th, Andreas Nordseth, Director General of the Danish Maritime Authority, participated in opening the conference e-Navigation Underway 2018 AP in Seoul, South Korea, where the new cooperation agreement was later signed.
Andreas Nordseth, Director General of the Danish Maritime Authority said: "Cooperation and global solutions is the way forward if digitalization is to ensure development, growth and increased safety. From the Danish side, we are pleased with the widened cooperation. We share a common interest in promoting the digital agenda, including global e-navigation solutions."
The Danish Maritime Authority has for the past couple of years entered into several cooperation agreements (MoU - Memorandom of Understanding) with other leading maritime nations to promote Danish views and positions of strength on maritime policy.
The cooperation agreements benefit both the Danish Maritime Authority's ability to act actively as an authority, while Danish shipping can benefit from bilateral contact existing on a governmental level.???
