Maritime Indonesia 2008

Seeking Competitive Advantages

in a Global Shipping Market

Wednesday 19 November 2008
Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta
Jakarta - Indonesia

Following up the success of the “Maritime Indonesia 2007” conference in Jakarta Mare Forum, The Indonesian Shipowners Association,
Pt. Arpeni Pratama Ocean Line Tbk and DVB Bank  are organising a logical sequel and progress report to the topic of “Maritime Indonesia- seeking competitive advantages in a global shipping market". The conference will be held on Wednesday 19 November again at the Four Seasons Hotel.

Maritime Indonesia is an opportunity for the leaders of Indonesia and the leaders of international shipping to come together and examine the opportunities and challenges that they will face over the next few years. Indonesia is rich in natural resources and hungry to exploit them. It is rich in energy, both from fossil fuels and from bio sources. It is rich in people and they are hungry to become more prosperous. The government is discussing the legal structure to facilitate both investment and trade and last June introdused the New Shipping Law. Banks and financiers are already knocking at Indonesian doors, seeking to finance shipbuilding, shipping, crewing and resource exploitation. Indonesian shipowners and business are already looking at capital raising outside Indonesia. The economy is at the tipping point, ready to go. When it goes, it will grow quicker than China, quicker than India, because the world is moving more quickly with each boom.

Come to Jakarta in November and engage with the leaders of Indonesia’s shipping, trade and energy sector. Act now, because now is the time when Indonesia is set for take off.
