The summit presented a unique opportunity to discuss important issues the shipping industry is facing, including decarbonization, digitization, improving safety. The participants discussed how to attract the right talent to the maritime industry and considered ideas for action that will shape the future of the industry. An in-depth report from the Annual Summit will be published by the Global Maritime Forum later this year.
