The China Maritime Centre is holding a one-day course on Monday 10th June 2013 in Greenwich, UK.
Over the last decade China has become the leading influence shaping global seaborne trade, as result of a remarkable upsurge in trade volumes. This GMI short course will be led by the Director of China Maritime Centre Dr Minghua Zhao, international shipping analyst Richard Scott and researcher Yifan Liao who specialises in ship recycling. The aim of the course is to investigate how, and explain why, China has become such a prominent part of the global maritime scene within a relatively short period since the early 2000s, and to provide some clues about future trends.
The course will focus on three specific areas of growth within the maritime industry in China:
•China’s maritime trade and ports: a remarkable expansion
•The rapidly growing China-owned merchant ship fleets
•A new era for shipbuilding and ship recycling in China
The cost is £90 per person which includes lunch, refreshments, course materials and a certificate of attendance. A booking form can be found on the Greenwich Maritime Institute website: http://www2.gre.ac.uk/about/schools/gmi/study/short/programmes
