The “Maria Tsakos” Foundation was a sponsor of the official celebration of the Greek Merchant Marine Day and European Maritime Day, the proceeds of which will be disbursed towards the upgrade of maritime education.
The celebration of Greek Merchant Marine Day was established in 2008 by the Hellenic Chamber of Shipping (N.E.E.) and the Pan-Hellenic Seamen’s Federation (P.N.O.) in honour of our great merchant marine, its sailors, and the entrepreneurs of the seas. Subsequent to the establishment of this institution, the European Union established the celebration of European Maritime Day.
