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? In spite of having wealth of knowledge and experience, what is impeding the growth of Indian entrepreneurs?

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 business to exchange ideas and make informed decisions in their businesses. Delegates shall participate in the “Open Forum” to discuss the latest issues with other participants and experts from the industry.
