A Visit to Asia Ports 2014 Conference
— Indonesian Ports Have Growing Growth Potential
From Oct. 7 through 10, Ports Conference, which was hosted by IBC Asia, was held in Jakarta, Indonesia. As a melting pot for infrastructure projects, Indonesia now sees huge opportunities for port business created with the new local government’s speedy expansion of investment. Especially, this year’s conference was a highly valued event that provided special opportunities as follows.
- Indonesia Government updates on new projects
- 15+ regional projects and 20+ case studies
- Round tables on Strategy and Operations
- Co-located with Asia Transport Infrastructure
- Range of partnership and business opportunities for investors, technology and equipment vendors and port operators
The most impressive presentation delivered in the several sessions of the conference
came with the title of “Trend and Future Requirements for Indonesian Ports”
, which was given by Truong Bui, Project Manager from Roland Berger. Through a forecast in his presentation, Mr. Bui suggested that while Singapore would continue to play the role of a major hub, some other route could emerge to replace it in the long term. This would be due to the accelerating economic growth in Southeast Asian. Especially Indonesia, boasting its geographical advantage of being positioned between China and India and facing an increasing trade volume in the ASEAN region, was predicted to register great growth potential.
