The 9th International Forum on Shipping, Ports and Airports (IFSPA) 2017 is co-organized by the CY Tung International Centre of Maritime Studies and the Department of Logistics and Maritime Studies of the Faculty of Business at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

Under the theme “Innovative Transport Logistics in Shaping the Future of Supply Chains”, delegates will be exposed to prompt presentations from renowned keynote speakers who will be addressing issues such as areas of emerging technologies, electric vehicles, transportation infrastructure planning and investment, airport scheduling, and intercity connectivity.

With a comprehensive agenda over the 4-day period, delegates will benefit from a stimulating event that has been carefully crafted to inspire collaboration and the transfer of best research practice.

The IFSPA 2017 Conference will also be a forum for transportation experts to expand its global network as postgraduate students, interested researchers and stakeholders from around the world will be attending.

As Chairman of the Organizing Committee, I invite you to attend this most important event in the Asia pacific and look forward to seeing you at Hong Kong in May.
