Welcome Message from the Chairs of the Conference Committee

The Korea Maritime Institute (KMI) and the Shanghai International Shipping Institute (SISI) are honored to be able to host the International Association of Maritime Economists Conference 2022 (IAME Conference 2022) to be held in Busan, Korea, September 14-16, 2022. Since its foundation in 1992, IAME has developed into an international association with over 300 individual members from every continent and more than 10 corporate members. The Association is officially linked to two leading academic journals within the field: Maritime Policy & Management and Maritime Economics & Logistics.

KMI has an unique friendship with IAME as it hosted first the IAME Conference in Seoul in 1994 and will celebrate the 30th IAME Conference in Korea in 2022. Under the theme of “Impact of COVID-19 on the Maritime Industry: Challenges and Responses”, the IAME Conference 2022 aims to share the latest information and knowledge on global shipping and trends and reinforce social networks among participants from a range of different fields.

KMI and SISI will invite distinguished professors and researchers to the conference, which will give us the chance to listen to invaluable insights on their research results and advance developments in the global shipping industry. The conference in 2022 will inspire participants from various countries with innovations and new collaborations between academia, government, and industries in response to a rapidly changing society.

We cordially invite you to participate in this conference and hope you have an enjoyable experience in Busan, Korea.
