Global Shipping Think Tank Alliance
Since December 2016, the Centre has joined the Global Shipping Think Tank Alliance. The Alliance was founded to gather famous shipping think tanks in different regions of the world, set up a platform for exchange and cooperation, guide the sound development of the global shipping industry and promote solid interactions between shipping think tanks and international organizations and governments of different countries, in order to cope with the challenges faced by the shipping industry. It promotes policy communication between countries and relevant international organizations and advances academic exchange and information and resource sharing, in a bid to contribute to the development of the global shipping industry.
