The Summit went someway to assessing the challenges facing the shipping industry as it strives to comply with the goals of becoming even more greener, efficient, safer and environmentally friendly and make the “desirable doable”.
The large number of participants who registered and attended during the day indicate the programme as a whole was very well received. The presentations often led to lively exchanges between the platform and the delegates both inside the conference hall and outside, which only added to the Summit’s worth and the feed-back in general has been extremely positive.
