The organization hopes to match the naval resurgence of Vigo.
The organizing committee of the biennial fair estimated Navalia will finally bring about 500 companies of shipbuilding from five continents in the contest to be held late next May at the exhibition centre in Vigo (Ifevi) as La Voz told the managing director of Navalia, Javier Arnau. The exhibition, which is poised to be the second largest after Conxemar by the number of exhibitors and countries represented, was held at the exhibition centre of Cotogrande between 22 and 24 May, with a clear internationalized (companies are expected more than 75 countries) and trying to cover as many related sub-sectors.
Navalia wants to take the start of an emerging counter in the world shipbuilding industry, which tentatively begins to trace a black biennium. Thus, compared to the Spanish situation, paralyzed by the inability to recruit new units until they resolve the tax lease or bonus system for shipbuilding in many other countries affected by the economic crisis there is a real zeal for building new ships. This happens in territories such as Russia, Brazil, Peru, Chile, India and Panama. The types of ships are different in each country listed, but the common denominator is that all of them, although in different amounts, require new ships and the many companies that make up the Galician naval industry want to make this impending revival of the sector worldwide.
