The Big Idea

Dear Colleagues,
We would like to invite you to join us for 1st Port Development South East Asia Summit 2019 (PDSEAS 2019), scheduled during 23rd - 24th January, 2019 in Bangkok, Thailand.
PDSEAS 2019 aims to be the platform where all the stakeholders could discuss the current outlook for the South East Asia port and shipping industry, the opportunities and challenges posed, and envision the future and preparation needed to better the growth in the years ahead.
A modern and well managed port sector is crucial to South East Asia’s economic progress and to expanding global trading routes. Development of the ports infrastructure is therefore a growing priority in such an extensive archipelagic region of some 24,000 islands which span 5,200km east to west and 3,400km from north to south. Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, and the Philippines are currently planning to upgrading or building new port facilities.
Why Thailand? Thanks to Thai Government’s EEC project, ambitious plans are undertaken in the port sector. Sattahip commercial seaport, Phase Three development of Laem Chabang Port (140 billion baht) and Map Ta Phut Port (11 billion baht) are among the top 7 priority projects. EEC Act became effective in May 2018 after long delay and will boost investors’ confidence. You will find Thailand an ideal investment destination with abundant opportunities in the port sector.
We expect that 30+ industry leaders and 200+ senior executives will join this high profile event. We are confident that PDSEAS 2019 will offer all the stakeholders advantage to develop the South East Asia port and shipping business.
We look forward to meeting you in Thailand!
Organizing Committee of PDSEAS 2019
