Shipping Secretary Gopal Krishna to grace South East CEO Conclave 2018 in Chennai on June 29 as Chief Guest


Mr Gopal Krishna, Secretary, Ministry of Shipping, has kindly consented to grace Exim India’s South East CEO Conclave (SECC) 2018 (the 10th edition) as Chief Guest. The event is scheduled at the luxurious environs of the ITC Grand Chola in Chennai on June 29, 2018.


An IAS officer of the 1983 batch West Bengal cadre who has gained a reputation as a dynamic bureaucrat, Mr Gopal Krishna, an MSc in Physics and MBA in Business Administration, has handled many important responsibilities at the Centre and state levels.


It will be an excellent opportunity for representatives from the maritime, cargo, logistics and ex-im trade attending the event to interact with the Ministry’s top policymaker.


Keen participation


A large number of delegates from all over India have already confirmed their participation in the Conclave. And many more have been expressing interest as the event draws closer, attracted by its topical theme and line-up of top speakers and panelists.


Mr P. Raveendran, IRTS, Chairman, Chennai Port Trust, will be among the leading lights from the sector and the regulatory authorities at the event as speakers and panelists.


Three sessions


The Conclave, in partnership with The Madras Chamber of Commerce & Industry, has the theme ‘Shipping & logistics in an era of disruptive technology - Challenges and the way ahead’. It is spread across three sessions that will broadly focus on the present and future in shipping and logistics, the digital transformation happening in shipping, ports, logistics and air cargo, and the new developments and initiatives of Customs to simplify shipping and logistics.


South East - Cargo & Logistics Awards 2018


The conclave will be followed by the South East - Cargo & Logistics Awards 2018, the region’s premier recognition of excellence, with individuals and companies being honoured in multiple categories.


SECC 2018 will thus be highlighted by a very topical deliberation, a popular awards function and an occasion for the entire industry and other relevant players to meet and network under one roof.
