About the Event 关于活动

At a time when the global epidemic of COVID-19 has been approaching three years, the shipping and cold chain industries on which the global economy depends have been affected by the blockade of borders by various countries. The constant game between imprisonment and openness has reappeared. The import and export supply chain was once in chaos, and the rights of international oceangoing seafarers such as shift change and rest have been blocked. Shipping enterprises have faced the highest bankruptcy risk in the past decade. International cruise ships, which are regarded as culture dishes for virus transmission, have also been berthing in offshore areas outside the port for a long time. The resumption of voyage was once far away, which has become a new landscape in the eyes of nearby residents. In this activity, we invited Hu Yuexiang, a senior captain of China Ocean Shipping with 30 years' experience in navigation, to tell us about the knowledge and unique culture of ocean going navigation of ships, as well as the working mode of shipping industry in the process of globalization, pay attention to the groups and events that are restricted in the context of the shipping industry before and after the epidemic, and discuss the challenges and crises that the shipping industry may face in the global climate change crisis.
