Global Maritime India Summit
Third edition of Global Maritime India Summit 2023 (GMIS 2023), organised by the Ministry of Ports, Shipping & Waterways, was held in Mumbai, from October 17-19, 2023. As the largest maritime event in India’s history, it saw a significant gathering of the maritime sector, bringing together stakeholders, industry luminaries, and experts from around the world. With Vizhinjam International Seaport Thiruvananthapuram – India’s sole transshipment port, which holds a strategic advantage for accommodating large vessels, due to be commissioned in 2024, the maritime sector holds immense potential not only for the region but also for the whole of Kerala. Representatives of Awake Trivandrum visited GMIS and will facilitate discussions and forums to bring together stakeholders to foster inclusive and informed urban development decisions, with emphasis on the opportunities that Vizhinjam would create.
