Introduction & Objective of The Summit:
Global Shipping Industry is under extreme pressure for last several years due to overcapacity. Commercial and Technical fitness of the vessel is of paramount importance in these market conditions. Quality & Safety of operations, Crew management, and reducing costs for ship owners are some of the major challenges faced by the ship managers today.
Third party ship management business is estimated to be over 5 billion US Dollars worldwide. Can India be the hub of ship management business? Why technical management and manning of the foreign vessels is a distant dream for Indian entrepreneurs based in India? Can Mumbai or Chennai be next Hong Kong or Cyprus? Despite having wealth of knowledge and experience, what is impeding Indian entrepreneur’s growth? One of the goals of Ministry of Shipping is, increasing the share of Indian Seafarers in the global shipping industry.
What kind of specialization and training is needed for the trade?
Do we have a roadmap to achieve these goals?
India Ship Management Summit will address these important issues that exist for various stakeholders in the industry. The conference aims to provide a common platform for various stakeholders in the ship management & crew recruitment business to exchange ideas and make informed decisions in their business.
Come, join us and benefit from the opportunity to connect, confer and conduct business!
