Although the term “blue economy” has been used in a variety of different ways, it is understood here as comprising the range of economic sectors and related policies that together determine whether the use of oceanic & current water resources is sustainable. What needs to change?

How will the evolution of automation, big data and AI help the future development of the Maritime related Industries, shipping and ports as well as ground and air transport for instance as they seek to achieve net zero targets by 2050?

Another area of focus under the blue economy drive is the realization that the sustainable management of ocean & water resources requires collaboration across nation-states and across the public-private sectors, and on a scale that has not been previously achieved. There is a strong need for more PPP- Private Public Partnerships to tackle the funding gap and address the major infrastructural shifts required to provide the clean energy and clean water from our oceans and lakes, to meet future demand.

We gather experts from their chosen field to discuss the challenges of governance and opportunities that lie ahead especially in relation to Asia. What actions are underway and where does the focus need to be as we come out of this pandemic? We certainly cannot afford to go back to the way things were pre-covid.
