JAKARTA, Indonesia, Oct. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Marintec Indonesia (November 23-25, 2016, Jakarta International Expo, Kemayoran), established in 2014 as one of the leading exhibitions in Asia within the maritime sector, is to bring solutions to support the Indonesian government's long term plan to build what will be the largest integrated seaport in Southeast Asia by facilitating a recurrent high quality event in Indonesia.
Organised by UBM Asia, Marintec Indonesia combines a high-caliber conference and sharply focused exhibition – unique in the country – to provide marine industry professionals the only specialized platform in the field and the best opportunity to meet decision makers, policy makers, influencers and researchers.
Geo-position, land and sea extensions, economic growth, population, security concerns, national and international interests, all concur to make Indonesia a pivotal player in the maritime industry in the region. The economy of the maritime sector is expected to reach 5 billion US dollars per year, as Indonesia develops the three archipelagic sea lanes (ALKI) with an intrinsic very high potential of trade value (Source: World Food Programme (FAO)).
In order to advance development at a fast pace, the government aims at attracting foreign direct investments by cutting red tape, facilitating business and operations. A platform like Marintec Indonesia, with its international conference and workshops - and international participants already confirmed from China, India, Japan, Korea, Panama, Portugal, the UK, the Netherlands and Singapore - is therefore instrumental in the process.
In anticipation to the opening of the event in November, on July 29th Marintec Indonesia held a conference attended by the Coordinating Minister of Maritime Affairs, the Ministry of Industry, the Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM), and the Chairman of Indonesia's Shipbuilding & Offshore Association (IPERINDO).
Topics ranged from President Jokowi's vision of making Indonesia the world's maritime axis, the existing legal framework, regulations, the developing national industrial policies for the maritime sector, investment opportunities and the exciting path ahead of us.
The conclusion was clear: Indonesia can grow its role in South East Asia from regional to a global status, and Marintec Indonesia -- part of a network of marine exhibitions in countries such as mainland China, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, Portugal, Panama and India - can definitively help in the process.
