Bloomberg TV Programme 'Changing Tides: The Future of Shipping'
On 26 January, Bloomberg TV taped a special shipping segment on the B-Deck at the Hong Kong Maritime
Museum. Against the backdrop of the Museum’s modern ship models, four panelists joined host Nathanial Bullard, Global Head of Executive Insights at Bloomberg New Energy Finance, and spoke about innovation and the future of shipping.
Messrs. Tim Smith, CEO of Maersk Line North Asia, Julian Proctor, Managing Director Tiger Group, Sverry Prytz, Founder Green Marine Capital and Tom Boardly, Director of Marine Lloyd’s Register each had insights on the topics ranging from regulation, technology – including the use of big data – and the critical importance of research and development. When asked how tonnage will change in the future, panelists discussed the new Maritime Silk Road as it relates to investments in port infrastructure in Africa and South America and how this will open new trade lanes and change the mix of tonnage. The segment aired on 16 March 2015.
