The fifth Maritime Standard Ship Finance and Trade Conference 2019

Speaker TMS Ship Finance & Trade Conference 2016- H.E. Dr. Abdullah Salem Alkatheeri

The fifth annual The Maritime Standard Ship Finance and Trade Conference will be held at Sofitel Abu Dhabi Corniche on 6th November 2019. It will seek to build on the reputation for quality information sharing and networking earned over the past four years.

In 2018 the Conference attracted a high-quality audience of around 150 executives and decision makers from across the industry. They assembled 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 heard from some of the best-known personalities in the business, all leaders in their chosen fields, who highlighted the importance of building partnerships to help accelerate investment-led growth within the industry.

Keynote speaker, H.E. Ahmed Shareef Alkhoori, Director General, Federal Transport-Land & Maritime, set the scene, underlining some of the positive changes being planned for the country’s maritime laws, and the proactive role the UAE is now taking in its role as an IMO Council member. He was followed by Abu Dhabi Ports chief executive, Capt. Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, who gave the second keynote presentation, urging financial institutions to work more closely in partnership with ports and shipping companies.

The first of twoafternoon sessions focussed on how best to develop strategies for the future, working with the financial sector. Highlights included presentations by Jacob Berman, Managing Director, Infrastructure and Transportation, Corporate & Institutional Banking, Standard Chartered; Andrew Simmons, Chief Executive, Global Marine Transport Capital; Bora Bariman, Head of Energy & Marine, National Bank of Fujairah; Andrew Baird, Partner, Watson Farley & Williams (Middle East); and Adel Al Wahedi, Chief Financial Officer, Abu Dhabi Ports. The audience also heard from Sinan Ozcan about the new Maersk Trade Financeprogramme, which has recently been launched in the UAE.

The third and final session featured case studies illustrating how different businesses can be developed to diversify regional maritime clusters, in support of shipping and trade growth. Speakers in this section included June Manoharan, Director, Lukoil Marine Lubricants; Katherine Yakunchenkova; General Manager, Al Safina Security; and Stephen Bligh, Senior Principal Consultant, DNV-GL

After the presentations there was a networking opportunity at which attendees and panellists were able tocontinue discussions about issues raised during the event.
