Indian cabotage laws set to be relaxed

Indian cabotage laws set to be relaxed

Singapore: Indian cabotage laws are likely to be relaxed in order for a brand new port to take on Colombo as the leading transshipment hub in the region, Seatrade Asia Week reveals in Issue 16 of the new title out today. Vallaparadam is being touted by Indian officials as a potentially huge game changer in how boxes are moved in and out of India, though many local lines are unhappy with any potential change in cabotage laws. Also inside the weekly regional e-newspaper are exclusive reports on how China is coping with the huge oil spill off Dalian, who the likely culprits of the pipeline explosion in the northeastern city are, as well as a review of the sudden swell in containership orders. Seatrade Asia Week editor Marcus Hand charts the rise and fall of Vietnam's state shipbuilding firm in this week's feature.
Seatrade Asia Week comes out 50 times a year, with exclusive reports from an experienced, dedicated network of journalists across the region and is priced at just $300 a year. For more information, click
