The Global Maritime Forum is an international not-for-profit organisation committed to shaping the future of global seaborne trade to increase sustainable long-term economic development and human wellbeing.
The Global Maritime Forum is founded on the idea that progress happens when people from all parts of a system – in this case the global maritime industry and its stakeholders who have the will and the influence to make positive change – come together to discuss challenges and work together on finding new solutions. We believe that this will lead to a brighter future not only for the industry, but for society as a whole.
It is our objective to shape the future of global seaborne trade to increase sustainable long-term economic development and human wellbeing. To serve our mission, we facilitate a wide variety of initiatives and convene key stakeholders at the Annual Summit.
Delivering long-term impact requires ongoing engagement throughout the year. Hence, the Global Maritime Forum serves as a broader platform for dialogue and collaborative action. This may include working groups and exploratory workshops to address specific industry-wide issues, recommendations for action and the like. Learn more about some of our initiatives here.
A primary vehicle of the Global Maritime Forum is the Annual Summit which brings together high-level leaders from across the maritime industry with policymakers, NGOs, experts and other influential decision-makers and opinion shapers to address global challenges that are particularly important to the maritime industry.
