Introduction & Objective

The emerging -global economy has opened up new avenues in all the sectors in general and maritime sector in particular. Policy makers in the government are aware that in a trade-driven, globalised world, ports play a massive role in a nation’s overall economic development.

Mr. Narendra Modi, the honorable prime minister of India has predicted that not only the centre of economic activities would shift from the west to the east, but India would emerge the world’s third largest economy by 2030 after China and USA with an estimated GDP of 15 trillion dollars. Mr. Modi feels that to be a global entity, Indian ports would have to be competitive and global in standards.

Also as per reports, India can save up to Rs. 26,000 Cr by 2016-17 if we can increase the share of coastal shipping in total traffic carriage thereby reducing the burden on other modes of transport. For which there is a need to encourage coastal shipping as a viable mode of bulk freight transportation as it has just about three percent of shares in carrying regional traffic. India’s seaborne trade, mainly consisting of POL, Coal, Iron Ore, Fertilizers, Containers etc. is mainly carried foreign tonnage. Can the Indian ship-owners increase their share in the carriage of cargo from and to Indian Ports?

Where are the emerging opportunities in Indian Shipping and Port Sector? Is the industry ready to tap on these opportunities?

With the above perspective in view and to explore if we are geared to grab the opportunities, The Shipping Tribune is pleased to announce a one day conference on 6th Feb 2015, Holiday Inn, Andheri (East) Mumbai.


The conference discussions are extremely useful to Port and Terminal operators, Ship owners, Ship Managers, operators, charterers, cargo interests, brokers, traders, agents, ship services, suppliers, bunker suppliers, financial institutions, insurance and law firms, media, national and regional authorities, Private Maritime Security Companies.
