“Approach to Integrated Maritime Systems” (AIMS)
0930 Hrs : : Hotel Four Points by Sheraton, Visakhapatnam
The Blue Economy : Prospects and Challenges for India
India is the 20th largest maritime country in the world. Its strategic location of a long coastline that flanks important global shipping routes makes it a major maritime nation.
The Blue Economy is a developing world initiative relevant to all coastal states and countries with an interest in waters beyond national jurisdiction. The Blue Economy conceptualizes oceans as “Development Spaces” where spatial planning integrates conservation, sustainable use, oil and mineral wealth extraction, bio-prospecting, sustainable energy production and marine transport. The Blue Economy paradigm constitutes a sustainable development framework for developing countries addressing equity in access to, development of and the sharing of benefits from marine resources; offering scope for re-investment in human development and the alleviation of crippling national debt burdens.
With this objective, Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), Southern Region in association with National Maritime Foundation (NMF) is organising the second edition of One Day Conference on ‘Approach to Integrated Maritime Systems’ (AIMS) at 0930 Hrs on 5th November 2015 in Hotel Four Points by Sheraton, Visakhapatnam.
