“China is an important partner with regard to the digital agenda, including global e-navigation solutions. The Chinese-Danish cooperation enables us to exchange knowledge and experiences,” says Bjørn Borbye Pedersen, Director of e-navigation at the DMA. “We have just expanded our cooperation agreement on e-navigation to also include China, so the seminar comes at an opportune moment.”
Aside from Chinese and Danish experiences gained from various e-navigation initiatives, the three-day seminar will delve into issues such as autonomous ships and the role of maritime authorities regarding digitalization. Joining the DMA and China MSA at the seminar will be representatives from China Shipbuilding Information Center, China Classification Society as well as relevant research institutions.
