Global Maritime Forum, an international not-for-profit foundation dedicated to unleashing the potential of the global maritime industry, has published a report looking at the high impact issues anticipated over the next ten years and asks how well the industry is prepared to respond to them.
The report, based on the views of global maritime leaders, says that:
- Environmental and climate related issues jump to the top of decision-makers’ agenda
- ‘Global economic crisis’ ranked to have potentially the greatest impact on the maritime industry over a ten-year horizon
- ‘New environmental regulation’, ‘geopolitical tension’ and ‘cyber-attacks and data theft’ perceived as most likely to occur in the next 10 years
- Industry deemed least prepared for global issues considered to have the biggest impact – although more confident in some financial areas
Baltic Chief Executive Mark Jackson is today in Singapore attending the Global Maritime Forum, discussing how the Baltic Exchange can play a role in helping the shipping industry decarbonise by providing credible benchmarks for the environmental impact of shipping.
