New Media has launched a bimonthly magazine ‘SeaPorts Business’. The magazine will showcase depth information and analyses covering all aspects of the ports and shipping sectors and allied services.
The objective behind launching this magazine is to meet the growing demand for information in the key sectors of ports and shipping, which are currently receiving a massive boost under the Government’s $110 billion 10-year Maritime Agenda.
Commenting on the launch, Satya Swaroop, Managing Editor, New Media, said, “At present, Indian ports are being modernised and expanded on a massive scale. There is infusion of new technology in equipment, services and operations. There is also hectic activity under public-private-partnerships in the ports sector. We see there is a great need for information and its dissemination among vast numbers of port users, both domestic and foreign.”
“New Media has conceived, designed and launched ‘SeaPorts Business’ in order to connect the different players in the ports and shipping sectors and service providers and bring to their doorsteps the world’s best practices in these areas, which are the key engines of economic growth,” Swaroop added.
The inaugural issue provides government’s policy initiatives, details of PPP ventures, interviews with top honchos and presentations by foreign port technology experts.
