SESSION TWO: TOMORROW'S MARITIME WORLD

With shifting trade patterns , new technologies and disruption to business models, where does the maritime industry need to be positioning itself within this changing world?

This session will examine the effects on trade. With changing demand and supply demographics can we really still assume that global trade will continue to grow? What is certain is that global trade is facing a sea change, with some parts of the world moving towards protectionism whereas formerly protectionist states appear to be championing free trade. How will these changes shape tomorrow’s maritime world?
