French Shipowners Ask for Maritime Marshall Plan

During his last days as chairman of the French Shipowners Association (Armateurs de France), Brittany Ferries chairman Jean-Marc Roué asked President Macron to save the French flag. “Mr President, you have repeatedly said that we are in war. Well, let’s make together a ‘Marshall Plan’ to save our industry.”

Now that ‘Brussels’ allows for more support, Mr Roué wants to start a Governmental rescue operation as soon as possible.

A new chairman has been elected: Jean-Emmanuel Sauvée (Ponant).
