French Maritime Positioning in Singapore and Asia

14 Feb 2017 – The mission of the French Maritime Cluster is to inform its members, create synergies and gather industry member. It is always in need of deeper, more insightful study of the local markets.

In 2014-2015, the French Maritime Cluster worked closely with ESSEC Students – as part of their ASC – to release a report on the South-East Asian Maritime sector and the French positioning in the region.  In 2015-2016 the focus was on the Maritime Singaporean market with Mapping of the Singapore Maritime market, its strategy and main actors as well as its international presence.

This year, the focus is to continue the survey on the Maritime Singaporean market and figure out how the French Maritime economy can compete or build synergies with Singapore industry.

With the support of the French Cluster Maritime Committee presidency, a dynamic team of 7 ESSEC students have already started to interview maritime key players and analyse the market.

The first results of the study have been presented on Tuesday, 14 Feb 2017, during a workshop held at ESSEC, where professionals from the sector had the opportunity to give their feedback and guide the students. It was also a great opportunity to meet some peers and create synergy/partnerships.

Many topics were discussed, and chiefly figured were Environment Issues, Technology & New Trends, as well as Education & Marketing.
