Leaders in shipping set to gather in Singapore for Sea Asia 2011

Singapore: Key players representing major maritime sectors will unite in Singapore from 12 - 14 April next year to project The Asian Voice in World Shipping at Sea Asia 2011. Top executives of leading international companies from China, India, Japan and Singapore among others will debate a range of issues in Asian shipping including the container and bulk trades, the state of the ship finance market, and drivers in the Asian offshore market. "Over 50% of the world fleet is being owned and operated in Asia and 85% of global shipbuilding capacity based in the region. The Asian maritime players play a vital role in global shipping and Sea Asia's aim is to reflect that and discuss ways in which Asia can ensure that its voice is heard clearly and coherently on the global stage," said Christopher Hayman, chairman of co-organiser Seatrade. Pacific International Lines' (PIL) md and president of the Singapore Shipping Association, SS Teo, will chair the container and logistics session, which explores the scale and rate of the economic recovery and its implications for both container operators and cargo interests in international and intra-Asian trades. Speakers for this session will include APL's president Eng Aik Meng, K Line's president and ceo Kenichi Kuroya, Maersk Line and the Container Business' ceo Eivind Kolding, SK Shipping's ceo Dr Kyuho Wang, SITC International Holdings Company's chairman and executive director Yang Shaopeng, and Wan Hai Lines' special assistant to the president Randy Chen. Yudhishthir Khatau, vice chairman and md of India's Varun Shipping, also President Designate of the Baltic & International Maritime Council (BIMCO), will chair the session on major bulk trades, examining prospects for dry and liquid bulk trades in light of recovery-led growth vis-à-vis demand, and an expanding fleet. Speakers for this session will include TCC Group's Group chairman and ceo Kenneth Koo, among others. [21/12/10]
