Welcome message from ACS Chairman

I would like to extend my warmest welcome to you all to ACS Seminar on Shipping and Shipbuilding 2021. Though this year’s seminar is different from the previous ones, I am so pleased to see the realization of ACS Seminar in this challenging time with the kind cooperation of our excellent partners from Asian Shipowners’ Association (ASA) and Active Shipbuilding Experts’ Federation (ASEF) as well as all ACS Members. I strongly believe that maintaining such a good channel for sharing knowledge would help us overcome the difficulties together. Thank you very much for joining us and please enjoy ACS Seminar.
