“An Inspiring Odyssey”



This is the second series of workshops with a theme of “Inter-disciplinary Maritime Practice” (IMP), and is jointly organized by The Hong Kong Logistics Management Staff Association (HKLMSA), C.Y. Tung International Centre for Maritime Studies, PolyU (ICMS) and the Hong Kong Seamen Union (HKSU). This IMP Series II (2) will follow the same methodology and format like the IMP Workshop Series I launched in January 2014, which was conceived to cover the entire lifespan of a ship, from the decision to purchase to its final loss or scrapping, and designed to provide a platform for eminent professionals from the Hong Kong Maritime Industry to unreservedly share their view and valuable experience with those professionals, young entrants in particular, in the shipping fraternity of the Greater China Region. IMP S1 was conducted in interactive and mind-provoking sessions, the value of which was clearly endorsed by most of the participants who requested incessantly for the repeat of a similar programme for months after the completion of IMP S1 December 2015. Responding to such earnest requests, the IMP Committee, have through its relentless efforts, succeeded in re-introducing an innovative, educational and interesting programme in IMP S2, in monthly 2.5-hour workshop sessions commencing on 29th November 2016.

The Second Session of the IMP Workshop Series II is on the topic of FINANCING and SHIPPING & RELATED PROJECTS with focus upon the sourcing of funds and structured financings for the contemplated investments on the Offshore Wind Energy projects in the Greater China Region, particularly to the maritime part, viz., construction of specialized vessels and port facilities. This session is a response to the analytical presentation on the Offshore Wind Energy given on 29th November 2016.
