With the number of upcoming mega-projects, the East African region represents an area of significant potential for investors, both foreign and domestic. This session will discuss best practices to attract investment for projects expansion, and explore how business and government can collaborate to address emerging economic realities.
Successful ports development and expansion in the region depends on on-going collaboration between many different stakeholders. Regulators, operators, shipping lines, cargo owners and maritime services need to find ways to align their interests to ensure continued port competitiveness and contribute to raising the standards of the maritime system.
This panel discussion will provide an overview of the following points:
- Challenges and opportunities of a collaborative model
- Globalisation of shipping lines and port operators
- Impact of shipping line mega-alliances on ports and terminals
