Marine tourism and shipping industry

Ruang Serbaguna (Floor 4)
Travel and tourism are worth over 9% of global GDP, support over 100 million jobs and comprise one of the world’s largest industries. Marine tourism is a main component of this industry. Marine ecosystems generate clean, calm water, pristine beaches and superlative seafood, among other benefits. However, an intensified and economy-driven shipping industry along with marine tourism have resulted in a wide array of environmental impacts, including liquid and solid waste pollution, and marine waters filled with micro-plastics. The economic logic of marine tourism and shipping needs a new perspective and orientation. Potential discussion topics:
  • Best practice and sustainable marine tourism
  • Regional and global connectivity and sea transportation
  • Liquid and solid waste management and micro-plastics pollution
  • Controlling emissions from the shipping industry
