International Maritime Organization Secretary-General, Koji Sekimizu, will deliver the morning’s keynote speech while shipowner John Lyras on behalf of the Union of Greek Shipowners will tackle the topic of the moment: Economic Sustainability.

The other keynote speech will be delivered by the Director-General of the International Labor Organization, Guy Ryder, who will speak of the importance of the Maritime Labor Convention which will have just come into force. The Chairman of the Shipowners’ Group at the ILO negotiations, Arthur Bowring (Hong Kong Shipowners’ Association) will advise on progress and any initial teething troubles.

The one-day conference will also consider key maritime issues including labor relations, the impact of the financial crisis, the emergence of China as an international maritime force, port state control, safety culture, environmental regulation and the international profile of shipping.
