About This summit
A modern and well managed port sector is crucial to South East Asia’s economic progress and to expanding global trading routes. Development of the ports infrastructure is therefore a growing priority in such an extensive archipelagic region of some 24,000 islands which span 5,200km east to west and 3,400km from north to south. Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, and the Philippines are currently planning, upgrading or building new port facilities.
When it comes to Vietnam, Deputy Prime Minister Le Van Thanh signed Decision 1579/QD-TTg in Sep. 2021, approving the master plan on development of Vietnam's seaport system in the 2021-2030 period, with a vision towards 2050. Vietnam will need 312.6 trillion VND ($13.3 billion) to develop a seaport system by 2030, according to the transport ministry, which recently said 78 per cent of that capital would be reserved for developing ports and the rest for public maritime infrastructure. By 2024, the focus would be on upgrading Cai Mep-Thi Vai navigational channel to enable it to serve ships of up to 18,000 TEU, and upgrading channels for large ships to enter Hau, Van Uc and Chanh rivers.
Envisioned to be a forum for the ASEAN port community to connect, network, share and debate, 3rd Port Development South East Asia Summit 2024 (PDSEAS 2024) is going to take place in Bangkok Thailand. Based on the success of PDSEAS 2023, we expect that 30+ industry thought leaders and 200+ senior executives from government agencies, port authorities, port & terminal operators, shipping lines, port equipment suppliers, solution providers, investors, bankers, insurancers, etc. will join this 2nd high profile event. We are confident that PDSEAS 2023 will offer all the stakeholders advantage to network, liaise and learn prospects & opportunities in South East Asia port and shipping business. PDSEAS 2023 is unmissable!
