WODCON XXII set for Shanghai

Shanghai is China’s financial, trade and shipping centre

WODCON XXII, the 22nd World Dredging Congress, will take place in Shanghai, China on 22-26 April 2019.

The event is organised by the Malaysia based Eastern Dredging Association (EADA), China Dredging Association (CHIDA), CCCC Dredging Group, CCCC Shanghai Dredging Company, and the 22nd World Dredging Congress Preparatory Committee.

The triennial Congress, the largest and most prestigious event on the global dredging calendar, will on this occasion be themed: ‘Enhance the Harmony Between Dredging and Ecology’. Environmental sustainability is a central theme of global economic development in the 21st century and the dredging industry has for many years been in the vanguard. WODCON XXII looks set to not only celebrate past achievements and current best practice but to set an agenda for continuing excellence moving forward.

China is the world’s second largest economy and Shanghai is the country’s financial, trade and shipping centre as the leading city in the Yangtze River economic belt. The Yangtze Estuary deepwater channel management project is the largest of its type in the world and a tribute to the country’s embrace of modern dredging development. Themes brought forward by the conference programme will be further illuminated by a site visit to the Yangshan Deepwater Port and Automated Terminal. A small exhibition by dredging relating companies will run alongside the conference.

English and Chinese are the official languages of WODCON XXII, with the conference papers to be presented in English.

Special hotel rates have been negotiated for conference delegates.To register and for further information, contact: Zhang Lu at Tel: 0086 158 008 33306 or Email: chida2018@163.com
