Join me as we focus on the ‘new normal’ for the global supply chain

In the latest webinar from Seatrade Maritime News, I will be joined by several experts to discuss how ports and logistics have and will continue to adapt to the “new normal” for the global supply chain with a focus on the part played by the Middle East.

The discussion is essential following the unprecedented pressure and disruption to “business as usual” and we will start the debate around what role Middle East ports will play in a more collaborative and coordinated global supply chain of the future.

Sponsored by Abu Dhabi Ports, the panel includes: Dr Noura Al Dhaheri, Head of the Digital Cluster, Abu Dhabi Ports and CEO of Maqta Gateway LLC; Dr Jonathan Beard, Partner, Infrastructure Advisory - Strategy & Transactions Asia-Pacific Platform, Ernst & Young Transactions Ltd; Robert Sutton, Head of Abu Dhabi Ports’ Logistics Cluster, Abu Dhabi Ports and Edward Tah, Chief Executive Officer, Saudi Global Ports.

This is the latest in a series of webinars that concentrate on industries as they adapt and endeavour to thrive in a ‘new normal’.

The webinar is free to attend, Wednesday 16th December at 1000hrs Gulf Standard Time, and you can join from this link:

Topics under the spotlight will include:

  • How can the Middle East maritime cluster support the global supply chain of the future? 
  • What role has technology played in the resilience of the supply chain in 2020 and how can solutions be utilised to ensure trade keeps flowing?
  • After an initial impact volume growth has returned to ports and shipping, can this trajectory of recovery be expected to continue?
  • How can what has been learned about managing supply chains in the pandemic be applied to make the sector more efficient in the future?
  • Will the economic effects of the pandemic have a lasting impact on the region’s patterns of trade with key markets in Asia and Africa?
