Overview

The coronavirus pandemic has placed huge stress on all aspects of the maritime sector. But, despite the immediate impacts, there is a clear need to maintain longer term local and regional visions for economic and social change. And that means finding ways of sustaining infrastructure development in ports and related sectors despite difficult times.

For its eighth Webinar in the Covid-19: A Leadership Perspective series, which takes place on September 9th at 12:30 pm UAE time (8:30 am GMT; 2:00 pm IST), The Maritime Standard is focussing on issues relating to infrastructure development that have arisen as a result of the pandemic and how challenges can be overcome to deliver sustainable growth. A top-quality panel with many decades of relevant experience is being assembled to discuss the key issues facing maritime infrastructure development and to spotlight long term future orientated strategies that keep growth on track.

Topics proposed for discussion include:

  • What impact will the crisis have on maritime infrastructure projects underway or planned?
  • Will new types of infrastructure be required post pandemic?
  • The banking and financial services perspective on maritime infrastructure looking forward
  • Will some port and other infrastructure projects be shelved or cut back
  • Impact on trade and cargo flows
  • Can countries’ individual development visions be realised?
  • Green infrastructure development
  • Shipbuilding and repair – evaluating long term investment requirements

The 2 hour webinar will include a panel discussion after which there will be a Question Hour, for online attendees to raise their own questions which will be put to selected panelists.
