Malaysia Shipping Master Plan: Revitalizing Shipping Industry

On 23rd March 2015 Maritime Institute of Malaysia (MIMA) has hosted the National Shipping Conference 2015: Revitalizing Malaysian Shipping for a Stronger Economy which was held at Istana Hotel.

The Conference was officiated by Yang Berhormat Datuk Sri Ab Aziz Kaprawi, Deputy Minister of Transport, who also delivered a speech on behalf of the Minister of Transport.

The Conference addresses key strategies and policies needed to increase the competitiveness of Malaysian shipping while addressing the problem of decreasing Malaysian tonnage. Ultimately, the presentation focuses on the need of a shipping master plan.

Named the Malaysian Shipping Master Plan, it encompasses the components needed for Malaysian Shipping to not only thrive, but to flourish in the global, regional and domestic markets.

The presentation stresses the importance of close coordination between the government and the industry, the fiscal measures and incentives needed to enable the industry to weather the storm and head towards recovery and lastly towards a developed maritime nation.

MASA Chairman, Mr. Ir. Nordin Mat Yusoff spearheaded the conference by presenting the need for a plan in order to reinvigorate the shipping industry. As someone of virtue once said “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail”. MASA Exco Member, Capt. Noel John Thompson presented the draft of MSMP made by MASA. He brilliantly addresses the key sectors that can be turned around by implementing simple yet effective “quick win” plans should the authority were to take up.

There were 6 presentations during that day. The titles and the presenter is as follows:
