Inaugural National Shipping and Port Council (NSPC) Engagement

31 October 2018

Putrajaya International Convention Centre (PICC), Malaysia

Ms Amy Aai, Senior Researcher from the Centre for Ocean Law and Policy presented on the Malaysia Shipping Master Plan (MSMP) 2017-2022 at the above event and elaborated on the current status of its progress as well as shared her views on the MSMP moving forward. Presentations were also made on improving the competitiveness and productivity of Malaysian ports, promoting employment of Malaysian ships, providing integrated training for greater efficacy by IMSML (maritime law society), and strengthening the Malaysian bunkering industry.

Chaired by the Minister of Transport, the NSPC is a key component towards realising MSMP 2017-2022. The Council will meet biannually while the six advisory councils established to develop and implement action plans for each MSMP focus area will meet quarterly. The Maritime Division, Ministry of Transport is the secretariat for the NSPC.

Each of the six MSMP focus areas are led by advisory councils tasked with promoting the employment of Malaysian ships, promoting the employment and welfare of Malaysian seafarers, facilitating access to capital and ship financing, enhancing Malaysia’s attractiveness to shipping businesses, promoting innovation in and sustainable growth of maritime ancillary services, and  improving the competitiveness and productivity of Malaysian ports.

The leads of the respective advisory councils will determine their membership and formulate action plans in the coming weeks. Progress will be reported at the NSPC meetings.

MIMA welcomes the establishment of the NSPC and the advisory councils and congratulates the leads on their appointments. This will provide much needed leadership in creating opportunities and addressing challenges for the nation’s maritime industry. MIMA will continue to support both the advisory councils and the NSPC in providing inputs for policy decision-making.
