10 Sep 2020

The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) and the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) will be jointly organising two webinars on the Future of Shipping on 17 September and 8 October. 

The webinars seek to share insights on digitalisation, decarbonisation and trade in a disrupted world following the global COVID-19 pandemic, said the IMO. 

Details of the webinar are as follows:

Future of Shipping: Decarbonisation

  • ​The first webinar – “Future of Shipping: Decarbonisation” will be held online on Thursday, 17 September 2020 from 10 a.m. – 12 a.m. (BSM, GMT+1). 
  • It will hear presentations on various cooperation-frameworks on decarbonisation from differing perspectives, ranging from the initiatives in the Pacific to actions led by the industry. 
  • A panel discussion will allow for an exchange of views on what are additional opportunities for cooperation, and consider next steps in realising those opportunities  together to support achieving the 2050 level of ambition set out in the Initial IMO Strategy on reduction of GHG emissions from ships.

Future of Shipping: Digitalisation

  • ​The second webinar – “Future of Shipping: Digitalisation” will be held online on Thursday, 8 October 2020 from 10 a.m – 12 a.m (BSM, GMT+1). 
  • It will hear presentations on the potential that digitalisation offers to make the maritime supply chain more resilient even in the face of new demands, and also discuss how to overcome challenges faced by maritime administrations and the industry on their digitalisation voyage.

​The webinars are open to all interested parties (subject to capacity constraints) and addressed to maritime administrations, industry professionals and organisations from the maritime community. The webinars will be conducted in English without interpretation.
