The exhibition is being held in conjunction with four separate but interrelated seminars, with the common theme of marine transportation.
The participation by both local and other s h i p y a r d s f r om throughout the world is seen by Marintec Asia organizer Hugh Stanton as further evidence of the growing importance of the Southeast Asian market for shipbuilding and ships' gear supply.
