Susumu Naruse, Secretary General of the International Association of Ports & Harbors (IAPH), will be among local and international speakers at the Subic Bay Maritime Conference & Exhibit on August 23-24, 2012 at the Subic Bay Exhibition and Convention Center.

IAPH has developed into a global alliance of ports, representing today some 200 ports in 85 countries. The member ports together handle well over 60% of the world’s sea-borne trade and nearly 80% of the world container traffic. It is a non-profit-making and non-governmental organization headquartered in Tokyo, Japan.

Themed “Subic Bay: Asia’s Emerging Logistics and Investments Hub,” the conference is being organized by Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) with Subic Bay International Terminal Corp (SBITC).

The two-day event will highlight the advantages of investing in the Subic port complex, identify business opportunities in the area, give an update on government infrastructure projects, and pinpoint Subic Bay’s attractions as a transshipment port.

Mr. Naruse’s talk on “Best Practices in International Port Operations” will discuss the most effective, efficient and productive practices applied by international ports to various aspects of their operations.

He joins a list of local and foreign maritime and trade experts, including Transportation Secretary Manuel Roxas II, National Economic and Development Authority director general Arsenio Balisacan, SBMA chairman Roberto Garcia and SBITC chairman Edgardo Abesamis, who will deliver presentations on topics ranging from Philippine economic prospects to Subic port’s viability as an alternative to Manila.

More than 300 domestic and international investors, shippers, and logistics and supply chain executives are expected to attend the gathering. To register and get more details on the conference, email event manager PortCalls at info@portcalls.com or visit www.subicmaritimeconference.com.
