Inward trade delegation to Seawork 2018 deemed resounding success
Seawork 2018 was pleased to welcome a trade delegation from the People’s Republic of China. Organised by the Department for International Trade (DIT), delegates representing rescue and salvage, pilots, boat builders, equipment suppliers and manufacturers took part in over thirty ‘Meet the Buyer’ meetings during the course of two days at Seawork.
Focusing on the purchase of Vessel Design, Aluminium Alloy Vessels (Rescue, Patrol and Pilot), Wind Farm Service Vessels and Innovative Equipment (Propulsion and High-speed Marine Seats) this was an opportunity for Seawork exhibitors to meet and discuss with international buyers, keen to make a purchase.
The Chinese delegation was also able to meet with UK Maritime Minister, Nusrat Ghani, who opened Seawork 2018 and then toured the exhibition, highlighting the importance of international trade.
Seawork Asia, Seawork’s sister event, the largest commercial marine and workboat exhibition in the Asian region will take place this year between the 6 – 8 November in Shanghai.
As the world’s second largest economy and biggest trading partner for many Asian economies, China is a key market and Seawork Asia provides unique access, offering many exporting opportunities for the Marine sector.
