Port Technology International is proud to announce its latest Publishing Partner – the Shanghai Maritime University (SMU)
As a multi-disciplinary university, SMU provides courses in engineering, management, economics, law, liberal arts and sciences with a specialist focus on shipping technology, economics and management.
Port Technology International looks forward to the new level of expertise and understanding that will come with such a relationship.
We have taken steps to ensure that SMU have a constant presence in both physical and digital publications. And SMU will mobilise its resources and influences to make known to the world the latest developments in shipping, logistics and port technology throughout China.
With the addition of our new ‘China Focus’ section that will feature in all of our publications over the coming year, we hope to provide some insight into the growth opportunities being offered by China and the growing influence that the nation will have on the international maritime community. Already, with the soon to be published 61st edition of our journal we have made this new feature a platform for professors and specialists from SMU to voice their opinions: Dr. Professor Jin Yongxing, vice president of SMU, discusses the pilot trial of the China pilot free trade zone in Shanghai. Dr. Shou Jianmin, the professor of shipping and port industry engineering economics at SMU, speaks about the importance of port system reform in mainland China.
Online, we look forward to their invaluable insight which will form an integral part of our Chinese language news and weekly newsletter.
Port Technology International would like to thank SMU vice president Dr. Professor Jin Yongxing, SMU director of foreign affairs Yu Hongrong, SMU dean of foreign languages Dr. Professor Shang Xin, and SMU’s associate professor, Wang xian, for their dedication and commitment to making this partnership a reality.
