THE DAY is nigh when Ports Australia’s Biennial Conference in Darwin kicks off, with hundreds of ports industry leaders braving the Northern Territory’s fearsome salties to talk about the future of Australia’s ports.
To be held from 27 to 29 August this year, the conference features a solid battery of heavy hitters to speak and share ideas about Australia’s ports over the three days.
At the top of the list is the deputy prime minister and minister for infrastructure Michael McCormack. With the release of the National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy expected in the not-too-distant future, Mr McCormack is sure to have some interesting things to say about the future of freight in Australia.
The conference is also to feature in-depth sessions on security, alternative energy, innovations, port policy and trade opportunities. Other speakers include a very popular federal shadow-minister, ports leaders from around the country, law enforcement representatives and many more.
