Nowadays we live in very dynamic times, that is why we wanted to address many current topics during the conference and try to anticipate what will be significant in the nearest future.

We will also talk about security challenges and their potential impact on trade in the region. Shipping and port market trends in the BSR and Europe will also be one of the main points during the conference. Last but not least, we will discuss maritime transport in the context of regulations. We will also take a closer look at the India-Middle East-Europe Economic Corridor and Baltic Sea – Black Sea – Aegean Sea Corridor.
