John Michael Radziwill was on typically bullish form when speaking as a panellist at last week’s Maritime CEO Forum held at the Monaco Yacht Club. Watch below as the GoodBulk boss outlines why he’s confident about dry bulk prospects for 2020.
Radziwill cited scrubber delays, which he predicted would carry through to the the first half of next year. On the demand side, he outlined growing iron ore trade with more miners upping exports. The Chinese, meanwhile, are saying they are going to spend more on infrastructure while for smaller tonnage such as supramaxes agritrade volumes are set to to jump if, as expected, the trade war between the US and China cools.
The lively dry bulk panel was moderated by Mandarin Shipping CEO Tim Huxley and also featured Cesare d’Amico, CEO of d’Amico Società di Navigazione, Danilo Fumarola, CEO of Gestion Maritime and Edward Buttery, CEO of Taylor Maritime on the stage.
A full report from the dry bulk session at the Maritime CEO Forum in Monaco will appear in the next issue of Maritime CEO magazine. The next forum is to be held in Hong Kong on November 18.
The Maritime CEO Forum in Monaco was sponsored by Arrow Shipbroking, Cambridge Academy of Transport, C Transport Maritime, Dualog, Liberian Registry, Lloyd’s Register, Marlink, PwC, and SeaQuest.
