Best Practise Strategies for Design, Planning, Construction and Asset Management 

The Economic Complexity Index (ECI) recently reported that Australia, as the 21st largest export economy, exported $243 billion and imported $219 billion, thus showcasing Australia’s economic leap since 1995 where the trade balance was 5 times less.

Along with substantial growth in international trade is the forecasted increase in cruise ship operations, with Australia seeing about a 35% increase in its high-capacity fleets since the 1990s. 

To remain competitive, Australian port operators must plan, design, manage and maintain their assets more creatively and proactively to meet future demands and drive profitability.

With this in mind, our Coast and Marine Structures Summit 2017 will focus on key considerations relevant to ensuring your existing assets are maximised and prepared to accommodate bigger vessels.
