Sixth Cadwallader Annual Memorial Lecture
15th September 2003
Challenges facing the shipping industry in the 21st century
The conduct of international trade has undergone fundamental changes in terms of safety and security and the shipping industry is at the sharp end of those changes and challenges. The implications may be that the weakest participants in globaltrade may suffer economically. The focus at this Panel/Forum discussion will be on ways and means of meeting the various challenges constructively.
It is intended that the themes will be selected from current issues such as: lessons to be learned from the ‘Prestige’ accident; implications of the proposed extended Navigational zone; the phasing out of single hull tankers; the Achilles’ heel of bulk carriers; the need for a uniform approach in regulations; security risks and protection of seamen and free trade; the new approach of Classification Societies.
There will undoubtedly be a new face of shipping in the 21st century.
The members and the Steering Committee of the LSLC are grateful for the
