A modern and well managed port sector is crucial to South East Asia’s economic progress and to expanding global trading routes. Development of the ports infrastructure is therefore a growing priority in such an extensive archipelagic region of some 24,000 islands which span 5,200km east to west and 3,400km from north to south. Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, and the Philippines are currently planning to upgrading or building new port facilities.

Based on the success of PDSEAS 2019, we expect that 30+ industry thought leaders and 200+ senior executives from government agencies, port authorities, port & terminal operators, shipping lines, port equipment suppliers, solution providers, investors, bankers, insurancers, etc. will join this 2nd high profile event.
