    Kitack Lim to outline future of ocean regulations at Nor-Shipping 2019

    Kitack Lim, Secretary General of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), will be taking the stage at Nor-Shipping 2019’s Ocean Leadership Conference on 4 June to talk about the future of maritime regulations, say the event organizers.

    Kim will join an elite group of global thought leaders at the Thon Hotel Arena Lillestrøm, adding to a programme designed to deliver insights on issues ranging from cyber security, to economic strategy, sustainable development, geopolitical forces, future energy demands, and much more.

    Mr. Kitack Lim is the Secretary-General of the International Maritime Organization (IMO)

    Nor-Shipping has refined its traditional opening conference this year to create a new format. The event week, which runs from 04 to 07 June 2019 across a series of venues in Oslo and Lillestrøm, is bringing together high profile individuals from diverse spheres of influence to give attendees a ‘bigger picture’ perspective of maritime and ocean industry development.

    In that respect, comments Nor-Shipping Director Per Martin Tanggaard, Kitack Lim is a key piece of the puzzle.

    “For anyone interested in the future of the ocean space, the IMO is arguably the principal stakeholder to follow, engage with and learn from,” Tanggaard notes. “With 173 member states and the mandate to define the regulatory framework of our ocean space, the role the body has in serving business, society and the seas themselves is both unique and critically important.

    “Kitack Lim, an immensely respected individual, will lead the organisation through to 2024 and this is a rare chance to hear him talk about his vision for the future and how the IMO, and its rules, will help shipping chart a successful, sustainable path forwards. We’re delighted to have him on board for Nor-Shipping’s first ever Ocean Leadership Conference.”

    Lim joins a group of speakers and panellists that includes Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, Nobel Laureate (Economics) prize winner Paul M. Romer, Admiral Michael Rogers, the former director of the National Security Agency (NSA), Geir Håøy, KONGSBERG CEO, Ann-Christin Andersen, TechnipFMC’s Chief Digital Officer, DNV GL CEO Remi Eriksen, and Lise Kingo, Executive Director of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), amongst others.

    “The potential for commercial development of the ocean space is huge, but the challenges, with the need for sustainable solutions most paramount, are also significant,” states Tanggaard. “To find the optimal route ahead there’s a pressing need to engage with diverse stakeholders, share knowledge and, crucially, work together to enable greater progress, understanding and a uniformity of purpose.

    “This conference reflects that need and, we hope, will play a role in provoking the discussion, action and collaboration that will help us access the opportunity that lies ahead. This will be a unique event, for our unique industry, not to mention an excellent way to get Nor-Shipping 2019 underway. I look forward to seeing everyone there.”

    Nor-Shipping has now sold around 75% of the available Ocean Leadership Conference tickets, while its entire 21,000m2 exhibition space is booked up. In total over 30,000 key decision makers are expected to attend the international event week, with around 1000 exhibiting companies showcasing the very latest products, services and innovations.
