10th Annual Maritime Risk Symposium at Suny Maritime

Press Release

3-Day Event Gathers Industry Leaders to Focus on Risks to the Marine Transportation System

From November 13-15, the 10th annual Maritime Risk Symposium (MRS) will take place at SUNY Maritime College bringing together academics, government, and commercial entities to discuss threats, challenges, and risks associated with the Marine Transportation System (MTS).

Key industry leaders participating in the event include First Coast Guard District Commander Rear Admiral Andrew Tiongson, MARAD Administrator Mark "Buz" Buzby, and New York State Supreme Court Judge John Ingram. "A resilient Marine Transportation System is imperative to our Nation's economic prosperity and national security," said Rear Admiral Andrew Tiongson, "Maritime commerce accounts for $5.4 trillion in annual economic activity across our Nation, and the complexity and congestion of our Nation's waterways continues to rise. The Maritime Risk Symposium provides the opportunity and education needed to set the strategic goals and collaborative lines of effort that are key to keeping up with this increased usage. Our partnerships fostered by this forum will enable us to maintain the safety, security and
stewardship of our Marine Transportation System."

MRS 2019 is crucial in identifying and addressing domestic and international issues and challenges to the MTS and risk management approaches. Experts from Shell, Hapag-Lloyd, and Morgan Stanley, among others will present vital information concerning the future of this ever revolving industry.

The Evergreen Program, a strategic foresight initiative developed by the U.S. Coast Guard, will conclude the three-day symposium.
