Global Maritime Annual Conference
Gujarat National Law University, Gujarat is organizing the Global Maritime Annual Conference with special themes on Ocean Resources, Maritime Transportation and Insurance.
Date: 16th - 17th November, 2013
Venue: Gujarat National Law University
Exploration and exploitation of ocean resources, maritime transportation and marine insurances are three key challenges before the maritime nations and industry worldwide. Ranging from marine life to manganese nodules deep in the oceans have required never before such critical attention of the policy-makers. Managing the exploration and operations in the oceans in a sustainable symbiotic manner can only guarantee a long-term solution to the broader needs of the industry and economy of developed and developing nations.
However, the research and development, the technological know-how, far-sighted visionary policies ensuring this objective demands a concerted and coordinated thinking and policy formulation at local as well global level. Developed Maritime Nations of Europe, US, Japan, Australia and New Zealand and their R & D institutions, global industrial conglomerates have made significant progress. While the developing maritime nations of the remaining part of the Globe and their industrial houses are far more behind, least to say, fully aware of the enormous economic and ecological importance of twinning a sustainable policy and practice in the exploration of ocean resources and management of maritime transportation. To address these interlinked issues and concerns, GNLU is organizing a two day global event with special themes on Ocean Resources and Maritime Transportation and Insurance with special focus on IOR-ARC.
Global ocean resources companies and R & D institutions, maritime transport industry, shipping houses and insurance companies, financers of port developments, infrastructure and logistics companies, government and port authorities and executives and operational managers, lawyers, capacity-building institutions, international organisations will tremendously benefit from the interactions and brainstorming sessions with global partners and experts.
Secretary, Ministry of Earth Sciences, Senior Officials from the Ministry of External Affairs, Ministry of Shipping and Indian Navy will be among the resource persons and have expressed keen interests and underlined the importance of organizing the Conference. GNLU Maritime Security and Anti-Piracy Conference 2011 (GMSAC 2011) witnessed presence of participants and resource persons from 35 countries and organisations including NATO, EU and the UN.
