Dear Colleague,

You are cordially invited to register for the Shipping China 2005 conference which will take place at the Four Seasons Hotel in Shanghai, 3rd-4th March 2005, and jointly organised by TradeWinds and Mare Forum.

Be warned. This is no ordinary conference. Based on the proven and successful debating style formula, Shipping China 2005 will leave you educated, entertained and exhilarated. In two days, you will learn about the issues effecting shipping in China through a series of experience sharing presentations and frank and open debates among participants.

Basil Papachristidis, Chairman, Hellespont Group commented, "China is a new major force in international shipping and I welcome the opportunity which this well-organised forum provides to strengthen links between East and West. "

Shipping China 2005 will focus on:

  • What can shipping expect from the Chinese Government going forward?
  • China's short and long term energy requirements and what that means for shipping.
  • Expert forecasts and predictions for the box ship, dry bulk, tanker and LNG markets.
  • Co-operation and alliances with Chinese companies - first hand experiences.
