Parliamentary Debate: “This house believes that too much is expected of the shipping industry on environmental matters”
For an industry with the size, complexity and importance of global shipping, new regulations from ballast water management to fuel regulations to decarbonisation present the industry with a significant cost and challenge. Is the regulatory agenda faced by the shipping industry appropriate? Is too much expected of the industry, not least given the scale of the change and timeline involved? Who will pay for these changes. The Sea Asia Parliamentary Debate for 2019 will bring together speakers on both sides of this important subject for a full and frank conversation on the issue, with opportunities for the audience to vote on the motion.
