Highlights

  • Apr 2017 | French Maritime Positioning: Final Report and Recommendations by ESSEC Students

With the support of the French Chamber of Commerce in Singapore and the French Maritime Cluster in Singapore, SMIB students from ESSEC Business School have produced a report on recommendations on how French companies can match Singapore’s maritime strategy on the long run.

 

 

After the first event organised at ESSEC Campus in February, students emphasised on the main challenges the industry is facing along with executives coming from all sectors: Environment, New technology and Education.

 

Taking into account the feedback received from the stakeholders, students worked hard to deliver a final report which established recommendations to answer those challenges and help French companies to be at the forefront of maritime industry.

 

The meeting was also an opportunity for Maritime industry players to network over a great breakfast.
