Growth in pan-Asian and international trade opportunities. The growing fleet of post-panamaxx vessels. Opportunities for trade specialisation and containerisation.
For fear of losing out to competition and to cash in on the opportunities, stakeholders are developing and expanding hundreds of ports projects across Asia.
But what are the typical challenges that impede a port’s growth?
•Delays in clearances for port projects and costly construction slippages?
•Dated infrastructure coupled with a shortage of funding for capacity addition and maintenance?
•Loss of business to newer, more efficient or better designed ports?
Ports and Marine Structures Asia brings together key senior stakeholders from the regional port and terminal industry across South and South East Asia to discuss and overcome these challenges.
Just some of the key issues addressed at the forum will include:
•Ensuring efficient master planning for faster environmental clearances
•Using latest dredging and engineering construction to sustain a port’s commercial viability
•Improving port competitiveness through higher operational efficiency
•Enhancing capacity by integrating new marine structures with existing ports and terminals
•Utilising optimal retrofitting techniques to cater to new generation vessels
•And much much more!
