General Manager at Port of Klang and Past President of International Association of Ports and Harbors Captain K. Subramaniam joins the discussion on how ports and shipping can collaborate to achieve 2050 goals.

This keynote panel taking place on Wednesday 8th May 2024 will discuss what collaboration methods are available for ports and shipping lines. It is crucial that all port authorities, environmental managers, shipping lines and energy managers attend this session to have their say and pose questions. Shipping already has regulations to follow from the IMO but what do they need from Ports to achieve these goals?
