Titanic ll European Headquarters likely to be in Paris
Blue Star Line chairman Clive Palmer announced in Brisbane today that the company had decided to establish its headquarters in Paris, France, in light of Britain’s decision to leave the European Union and the likelihood there would be no agreement between the UK and the EU.
“It is of little use having a European headquarters outside Europe,’’ Mr Palmer said.
“The decision will mean we won’t open our European office until March 2019, with Paris being ideally placed to suit the company’s needs.”
Blue Star Lines staff will relocate to Paris in early March 2019 where recruitment will take place for additional employees.
Mr Palmer confirmed discussions were underway between project’s World Director and suppliers and consultants world-wide to get Titanic II underway as soon as possible.
