 This year we celebrate at least several dates that are related to the sea or maritime activity. JŪRA MOPE SEA international business magazine, the origins of which date back to 1935, celebrates the 20th anniversary of its rebirth in 1999, which took place after several attempts to revive it. The 20th anniversary is also celebrated by KLASCO private stevedoring company, established in the territory, which was formerly known as Klaipėda trade port. Another intensively growing stevedoring company – Klaipėda Container Terminal – celebrates its 25th anniversary. Lithuanian sailors mark the 30th anniversary of the trip across the Atlantic, completed by three yachts – LietuvaAudra and Dailė. Lithuanian Sea Museum, cherishing and promoting maritime culture counts its 40th anniversary. Western Shipyard, which has been operating in Lithuania the longest, celebrated its 50th anniversary early this year. And the annual Sea Festival, reborn and held without interruptions, has reached its 60th edition. It is also worth noting that it has already been 85 years since the very first Day of the Sea, officially held as a Lithuanian state holiday.

And the Sea Festival, reborn and held without interruptions will take place for the 60th time this year. This is also the perfect occasion to remember that it has already been 85 years since the very first Day of the Sea, celebrated as a Lithuanian state holiday.

...There has not been an hour in the reborn Lithuania as the one upon us now. Crowds of people have gathered on our Baltic shore, where our rekindled nation can freely commune with the entire world and where the goods of our lands are exchanged with goods from other nations. These organised crowds have been assembled here by a collective purpose of making a statement that Lithuanians feel and understand the importance of the sea to the freedom of their homeland and that they will protect and defend this right of access to the sea in all ways they can. This very first magnificent celebration in liberated Lithuania will leave a trace in our minds and the history of our nation.

Klaipėda Container Terminal (KCT) is counting 26th year of stevedoring at the Port of Klaipėda. A quarter of a century ago the company emerged as one of the first private enterprises in the state-owned port. The newly-founded terminal was bold enough to challenge neighboring ports declaring it would handle containers, a type of cargo never seen in Lithuania before. Today KCT is recognized as a leading container terminal in the Baltic States.

In the middle of April, after a break that took years, a cargo barge, operated by the SE Inland Waterways Directorate, brought cargo from Klaipėda to Kaunas.

 

This trip was symbolic, reviving river shipping in Lithuania and the first significant achievement of the new director of the company and his renewed team. From now on, various cargo and containers from all over the world may be delivered via waterways not only to the seaport of Klaipėda, but also to Marvelė international river port in Kaunas.

There are merely 500 days left until the world EXPO 2020 to design and build the Lithuanian pavilion and furnish it with an exposition to represent our country, to gather the team of guides to work there during the event, as well as make the arrangements for the informative and cultural programme. Romas JANKAUSKAS, Commissioner General of the Lithuanian section and Chief Ministerial Adviser of the Ministry of Environment, shares his thoughts on the looks of the Lithuanian pavilion and what will make it stand out among others.
