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 to upgrading or building new port facilities.
Envisioned to be a forum for the ASEAN port community to connect, network, share and debate, 1st Port Development South East Asia Summit 2019 (PDSEAS 2019) is going to take place during 23rd – 24th January, 2019 in Bangkok. Featured speakers invited are from port authorities, port & terminal operators, shipping lines, leading equipment manufacturers, solutions providers, investors, etc.
Why Thailand? Thanks to Thai Government’s EEC project, ambitious plans are undertaken in the port sector. Sattahip commercial seaport, Phase Three development of Laem Chabang Port (91 billion baht) and Map Ta Phut Port (11 billion baht) are among the top 7 priority projects. EEC Act became effective in May 2018 after long delay and will boost investors’ confidence. According to Board of Investment, there are incentives for investors to invest in EEC.
