The article presents news relating to shipping industry. Given strong fundamentals and very receptive markets, financing activity for the maritime transport industry is set to explode. Shipping companies have been active in the debt markets as well, and going forward, the pipeline looks quite strong. From bulk carriers and tankers hauling basic commodities to reefers transporting bananas and container ships carrying finished goods, demand for all sorts of shipping vessels is booming. A key driver has been the industrialization of China and India, which are both big importers of commodities and, increasingly, exporters of finished goods.
