World Maritime Day Forum 2016

Join the Debate on Global Shipping’s Future Challenges

Billions of people all over the world rely on shipping for the essentials and the luxuries in life, shipping is indispensable, yet very few people realise it. Is shipping’s relative anonymity a problem and, if so, why? The World Maritime Day theme provides an opportunity for the shipping community to tell its story.
