TOC Asia 2009 Conference

TOC Asia 2009 will review the dramatic growth of the maritime powerhouse of Shenzhen and analyse why so many ocean carriers have made the region's facilities their port of call. However, with the prospects of a worldwide economic slowdown on the horizon, will the altregion’s ports and terminals face slower container volumes, and, if so, how will they react after years of seemingly unstoppable growth? Thus the principal theme of this year’s conference is Managing Uncertainty.

Situated in the south of the Pearl River Delta, in Guangdong Province, Shenzhen Port stretches along a 260km coastline. The combined ports – including among others Yantian, Shekou, Chiwan and Dachan Bay – now constitute the fourth largest maritime terminal complex in the world, recording a total throughput in 2007 of 21.1 million TEU.
