About the Course

Oceans are the backbone of world economy. Trade through water has enormous growing potential, and it grows by many folds every year. 90% of the world trade occurs through oceans and seas. An area with such great potential has equally strong challenges to face, the most important among them being its regulation. The trade and commerce in the maritime sector remained unregulated for a long period.

India has a coastline of about 7,517 km and it is the 16th largest maritime country in the world. The Indian shipbreaking industry has a global market share of 25%. India has one of the largest merchant shipping fleet with about 1000 vessels among the developing countries and ranks 17th in the world in terms of gross registered tonnage and 15th in terms of deadweight tonnes with more than 1200 ships and 17.5 million deadweight tonnes.

The gross foreign exchange earnings/savings increased from around Rs 2,698 crores in 1991–92 to Rs 5,490 crores in 1998–99 while the net foreign exchange earnings/savings increased from around Rs 1,558 crores to Rs 3,307 crores during the same period of Indian shipping companies. India has one of the largest and considerably well-coordinated merchant shipping fleets with over 75% of India’s international trade by value and 95% by volume is carried by sea.

Despite such tremendous potential, there is an acute dearth of legal and commercial professionals in the sector. The aim of the course is to acquaint the participants about the enormous career opportunities which this sector can offer.

The course shall be conducted from 24th July to 28th July 2020.

The duration of the course shall be 3 hours daily for 5 days.
