BFSB will join with the Bahamas Maritime Authority (BMA) to participate in the upcoming [Posidonia Exhibition and Conference]( in Athens, Greece from June 2 through 6. The 40 year old event is the largest gathering of international ship owners in the world, with attendance at this year’s event having attracted some 1,800 exhibitors and over 18,000 buyers, with senior shipping figures from 93 countries debating emerging trends for an insightful look into the industry’s future.

*“Posidonia is once again about to set the global agenda for the maritime industry,”* says Theodore Vokos, Executive Director, Posidonia Exhibitions S.A.

Aliya Allen, BFSB CEO, adds *“In an increasingly global economy entities such as those in the maritime sector which transact business in multiple jurisdictions value the importance of properly structured corporate affairs to take advantage of regional and multilateral trade opportunities, tax incentives and mitigation, profits re-allocation, transfer pricing, and double taxation treaty enhancements. Consequently the creation of a permanent establishment in a tax-neutral jurisdiction such as The Bahamas has a number of business benefits.”*

We invite you to visit The Bahamas Stand where, in addition to BMA and BFSB, other exhibitors will include the Grand Bahama Shipyard and the Bahamas Shipowners Association.
