Over 25 internationally renowned speakers will address the Colombo International Maritime Conference (CIMC) 2015. - See more at: http://www.dailynews.lk/?q=business/colombo-international-maritime-conference-cimc-launched#sthash.fgrP45YQ.dpuf

The conference will be held from September 24 to 26 in Colombo.

This is the the first such effort to position the country's shipping,logistics and maritime sector to the world. Ninety percent of the world's trade is moved through shipping and is considered as the wheels of global trade. It helps global economy propel and develop new markets to create wealth among nations.

In this context, Sri Lanka known to be a historical maritime nation is poised to play a major role in the coming decades to service the Indian Subcontinent and Asia as a mega transhipment hub. Post conflict Sri Lanka is a great opportunity for global investors to establish Indian Subcontinent's shipping and logistics hub as the country amalgamates the regional ports and connects regional trade through the main east-west shipping route to the rest of the world. All predictions are that Indian led growth will see many shipping and logistics opportunities in the Indian Subcontinent.

Sri Lankan ports will be a catalyst and could work with synergies with regional ports to enhance efficient shipping solutions to provide competitive and speedy market needs that would help global trade.

Since liberalising the economy in 1977 and post conflict Sri Lanka has invested steadily in its maritime infrastructure. Colombo is the only regional port as at now that offers facilities for current generation mega ships.

However the country has been slow in its marketing and promotional efforts to showcase its advantages to the world.

The event is supported by the government, private and public sector institutions and associations along with international and local chambers and many international organisations and institutions related to the industry.
