IAPH Regional: Post-pandemic Resilience of Ports in South-East Asia and Oceania

Friday, 25 June

11:00 am - 11:45 am (GST) / 25/jun/2021 09:00 am - 25/jun/2021 09:45 am

The initial impact of the COVID19 pandemic on ports in South East Asia and Oceania was significant, with the region suffering both extremes of major drops in vessel calls and cargo handled followed by an influx of demand and capacity utilization as the recovery took hold. With recent reversals in trends, ports are faced with the need to build up long-term resilience to combat extreme fluctuations in demand, ever-increasing vessel sizes, and changes in trade patterns. In this session learn how a variety of very different ports are handling these challenges.
