Germany-based piracy think tank PiraT, has published its latest newsletter covering a workshop conducted in early July.
On the 6th of July the workshop “Piracy and maritime terrorism: concernment of economic agents” took place in the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin). The results of the survey, which was conducted by the joint partners of the PiraT-Project, were presented and discussed with all participants. In the survey ship-owners and insurance companies were questioned. From the point of view of the respondents, the risk of piracy is presently regarded as very high and is expected to further increase.
