Webinar on: Maritime Administrators Forum 2020 – Perspectives Post COVID-19

This event is by-invitation-only.

The COVID-19 pandemic has turned out to be disrupting the way we do things in shipping – crew change for instance being one clear example hereof. All maritime nations have faced unforeseen challenges and have been forced to rethink rules and procedures. In a time of such major challenges it is important to take stock of lessons learned and start discussions of how we should move ahead and cope with such challenges in the future.

Maritime Administrators Forum 2020 aims to facilitate that maritime administrators from around the world discuss different perspectives on the lessons learned so far from the COVID-19 pandemic and views on the road ahead.

The event will be a platform to discuss opportunities and measures that needs to be taken to secure the maritime sector in the challenging times ahead.
