Taking place on 8th - 9th December, at the Suntec Exhibition Centre in Singapore, Port Finance International Asia 2014 will bring together attendees from port authorities, terminals, banks and investors, law firms and government bodies from Singapore, Hong Kong, the Philippines and other international locations interested in this exciting market.
The conference will consider how best to consolidate and sustain this growth in Asia’s booming ports sector. Discussion will focus on consumer and macroeconomic trends driving Asia’s maritime sector and how targeted infrastructure investment can strengthen the Asian service network and supply chains. We will seek to understand the role of strategic alliances in port development and where the investor stands in port project dynamics.
We will draw on case studies to highlight the key developments and opportunities for investment and partnership in the ASEAN ports sector. With a particular focus on Indonesia's influx of new port concessions.
Port Finance International Asia will offer industry leaders from port authorities, terminals, banks, law firms and governing bodies across Asia and international locations the chance to consider commercial outlook and discuss plans, projects and projections - as well as the chance to meet their colleagues, peers, business partners and clients.
