Themed “Subic Bay: Asia’s Emerging Logistics and Investments Hub,” the conference highlights the free port zone’s attractions as an investment and logistics hub and gateway to Asia’s expanding market.
In 2011, container throughput in Subic Bay reached 27,600 twenty-foot equivalent units, a growth of 7.8 percent over 2010 and the highest volume recorded since 2007.
The Subic Bay Maritime Conference & Exhibit is expected to attract more than 300 investors, shippers, and logistics and supply chain executives and will look at the advantages of Subic as a vital investment area for shipping and logistics companies.
Prominent local and international speakers will give updates on projects and initiatives at the port complex as well as provide insights on regional trade developments and their implications for the transport and logistics sectors.
There will be discussions on the attractions of Subic Bay as a transshipment port and investment center; synergy between Subic and Clark; Customs’ trade facilitation initiatives in Subic; and the greater push to raise productivity and efficiency at the Subic container terminals.
There will also be presentations on the impact of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations Plus China free trade agreement, and best practices among ASEAN seaport operators.
The conference is supported by the Philippine Maritime Industry Authority, Association of International Shipping Lines, Maritime Law Association of the Philippines, Subic- Clark Alliance for Development Council, Philippine Exporters Confederation and the Subic Bay Freeport Chamber of Commerce.
