THE maritime industry faces a year of uncertainty in 2019, underpinned by political, technological and regulatory disruption. But despite the risks, there are opportunities to be had, according to the experts we gathered to discuss the 2019 outlook for shipping at our Business Briefing earlier this week in London.
Joining Editor Richard Meade on stage were:
• Michael Parker, Global Industry Head for the Shipping, Logistics and Offshore Industries, Citigroup
• Despina Panayiotou Theodosiou, Chief Executive Officer, Tototheo Maritime and President of Wista International
• Roger Strevens, VP, Global Sustainability, Wallenius Wilhelmsen
• Capt. Rahul Khanna, Global Head of Marine Risk Consulting, Allianz
• Mark Williams, Managing Director, Shipping Strategy
• Jörgen Strandberg, General Manager Advanced Technology, Wärtsilä Voyage Solutions
The podcast chat is only a short snippet of the full debate, which included discussions around what the best investment opportunity for shipping will be next year, what is the greatest challenge to efficiency and what’s the biggest risk to shipping over the next five years.
We also got into whether shipping has taken its eye off the ball when it comes to safety; whether shipping will ever recover its cost of capital; and, aside from fuel efficiency technology, what will be the most significant driver of change over the next five years?
It was a genuinely fascinating debate and Lloyd’s List subscribers are going to be able to listen to the full hour and a half recording or watch the video next week.
Consider it a perfect stocking filler for that relative who always cherishes an authoritative forecast on the key drivers shaping the shipping markets over the next 18 months.
