Ho Chi Minh City will host the 11th ASEAN Ports and Shipping 2013 – the largest annual ports, shipping, and logistics exhibition and conference in the region – on July 11-12.
In addition to serving as a platform for ASEAN member states to discuss and analyse the latest global marine transport and logistics challenges and opportunities, this year’s event will focus on developing a roadmap towards highly-competitive shipping and building up a framework for maritime transport service and seaport development in the region during the global integration process.
The event will also offer opportunities to exchange experience in the formation and implementation of Public-Private Partnership (PPP) projects in port development as well as in applying the PPP model to attract investment and provide port services in some regional countries.
With the participation of hundreds of leading companies and corporations in the field, the programme aims to help the business community access information, products, equipment, and advanced technologies to develop a strong and modern system of marine transport among regional countries.
A two-day exhibition will be held to showcase containerised transport related products and services.
