Navigating in Turbulent Waters – Strategies, Prospects & Dangers
Make International Connections & Develop New Business
What a difference a year makes! While the shipping industry can benefit from low oil prices and a shrinking newbuilding orderbook, on the other hand we have new challenges with persistent low global demand, increasing regulation, and political storms such as Brexit and uncertainty regarding global policies under a Trump presidency in the largest economy of the world. Major casualties in these turbulence waters have already emerged. Are there any safe harbours for other players? How can they address the challenges and take advantage of opportunities?
This year’s Capital Link’s International Shipping Forum-China will seek to examine how Chinese ship-owners and leasing firms can navigate these turbulent waters by highlighting danger marks in global financing, capital markets and alternative financing, and by suggesting possible safe passages and harbours through joint venture opportunities with global investors and global maritime industry players, business re-structuring models and methods to optimize technical and commercial ship management during difficult market conditions. The Forum will also examine the interaction between Chinese ship-owners and leasing firms with their global counterparts and the role of Chinese Shipping and Maritime Industry in the global markets.
Speakers and panelists are experts and top decision makers from global financial, investment and maritime companies and organizations. They come to Shanghai prepared to address critical topics of interest to the industry and to interact with high level executives from the Chinese shipping, shipbuilding and finance communities.
As such, attendees of the International Shipping Forum(China) can expect a high level of rich industry information and unique networking opportunities with key maritime industry players, including influential members from the shipping, shipbuilding, commercial and investment banks, financial leasing companies as well as global traders of major dry bulk and energy commodities in a comprehensive one day event.
