Invited to speak as part of a panel discussion, President of Trelleborg's marine and infrastructure operation, Richard Hepworth, will discuss the importance of digitalization within the maritime industry at this year’s International Cooperation and Development Forum on Marine Economy. Hosted by the Ministry of Natural Resources of the People's Republic of China, the People’s Government of Guangdong Province and the Shenzhen Municipal People’s Government, this forum is held in conjunction with the China Marine Economy Expo in Shenzhen, China. The talk will explore how smart solutions will help to advance port operations for a strong and sustainable future.

Digitalization within ports is critical if owners and operators want to keep up with demands including growing vessel sizes, increased vessel unreliability and the need for reduced  emissions. Richard’s presentation will demonstrate the benefits of port automation and the advantages of smart technologies, for making the port and vessel interface more sophisticated and progressive. There will also be vital discussions on sustainability, and how smart technologies can help implement radical change within the maritime industry.

The forum will provide in-depth discussions on how China is developing its marine economy and the opportunities being created by the greater involvement of Chinese companies outside of China. Additionally, the Forum will provide insight on the increasing number of international companies in different sectors of the blue economy, that are realizing the potential of collaboration with their Chinese peers.

Expect to hear from world-renowned marine industry experts, government figures and Chinese business leaders, along with other key international stakeholders, to discuss the required improvements in global ocean governance to ensure the development of China's marine industry and the global marine economy, as well as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
