Abu Dhabi: The 3rd Annual The Maritime Standard Ship Finance & Trade Conference, held at a local hotel in Abu Dhabi, assembled a high quality panel of speakers, from a wide variety of backgrounds, to discuss and debate the key issues and trends facing the shipping and ports market in the Middle East and the Indian Subcontinent, with a particular focus on financial issues. The audience of around 150 heard from some of the leading and most well-known personalities in the business, including senior executives with many years’ experience in their chosen fields, who highlighted the importance of building partnerships to help accelerate investment-led growth within the industry.

Conference chairman, Clive Woodbridge, editor, The Maritime Standard, said: “There was a tremendous amount of optimism in the room, with a strong sense that there are significant opportunities for those who take the right decisions in a timely manner. However it was clear that collaboration, partnership building and improved communications between sectors are vital to ensure that the potential benefits in terms of investment and trade generation are achieved.”

The keynote speeches at the event were given by two prominent, and influential figures within the UAE shipping and ports sectors. A presentation by Dr. Abdullah Salem Al-Katheeri, Director General, Federal Transport Authority (FTA) - Land & Maritime, was followed by Abdulkareem Al Masabi, Executive Vice President, Ports, Abu Dhabi Ports. Both speakers were upbeat about the future and highlighted the key strategies and investment programmes being followed within the UAE, and the benefits these will have for the local economy and regional trade.

Dr. Al-Katheeri said, “The FTA is doing its upmost to enhance collaboration among all stakeholders in the maritime industry and to create the best framework to provide shipping and trade professionals with the opportunity to have dialogue with key decision makers. Our aim is to improve the business environment for the maritime transport industry, and to enable the delivery of competitive financial solutions for shipping, ports and associated services.”
