Asia: A vast potential for new solutions

The maritime, energy and other ocean-based industries is expected to be vital in meeting many of today´s global challenges. The oceans are already under significant pressure as a result of climate changes. The urgency for action is nowhere more apparent than in Asia, housing 60 percent of the world´s population.

– The technology for zero emission fast ferries are market-ready. This can revolutionize short sea shipping and urban transport worldwide. In our session world-leading maritime stakeholders will come together and discuss the needs and potential for cleaner maritime activities, says Økland.
