"Belt and Road" development strategy for shipping companies


Jul 25 2017

China's "Belt and Road" initiative is a new exploration of global international cooperation and a new model of global governance, and it has great significance.

In addition, the “Belt and Road” initiative has brought new growth points to the shipping industry that is still recovering slowly. At present, the recovery of the international shipping market is slow, and it is difficult to significantly improve the performance of enterprises based on business management alone. The “Belt and Road” initiative is not only a simple export of goods and capacity, but also the circulation of services and capital. To this end, China's shipping companies should take the initiative to integrate into this initiative to help China's economy open to the outside world. This is not only a manifestation of corporate social responsibility, but also a wise move to seize opportunities and improve the enterprise itself.

Ensure the quality of maritime talents and meet the demand for talents of the “Belt and Road” initiative.

The efficient operation of shipping companies cannot be separated from the support of maritime talents. At present, the shipping industry's demand for nautical professionals is gradually expanding, and fierce competition is more serious. There is a shortage of maritime talent resources, and the proportion of brain drain is also increasing.

To this end, Chinese shipping companies should actively learn from the seafarer management models and successful experiences of foreign shipping companies, strengthen international cooperation, and accelerate the process of talent internationalization. At the same time, shipping companies should effectively connect with the school's training model, formulate corresponding recruitment, training, and management systems for nautical talents, improve the training mechanism, and realize the optimal allocation and reasonable flow of nautical talents to ensure the quality and maritime talent "the amount".

Moreover, shipping companies can combine the development opportunities of the “Belt and Road” initiative to vigorously expand the transportation chain, service chain and value chain, etc., and expand the absorption of talents. This can not only make the enterprise's industrial layout more diversified, effectively resist the cyclical risks of the shipping market, but also provide more options for employment and transfer of land-based graduates, effectively avoiding brain drain.

At the same time, shipping companies should make reasonable adjustments to the absorption and deployment of human resources in a timely manner in accordance with market demands, establish long-term mechanisms to ensure the healthy development of shipping companies and China's shipping industry, and meet the talent needs of shipping companies under the Belt and Road Initiative. .

Combined closely with the “Belt and Road” initiative to promote development.

The implementation of the “Belt and Road” initiative aims to promote the common prosperity and development of the economies of countries in a wide range of regions and bilateral and multilateral cooperation in diplomacy and trade between countries. The combination of the “Belt and Road” and the development of China's shipping enterprises will definitely play a positive role in promoting each other and complementing each other.

On the one hand, shipping companies are important practitioners of the “Belt and Road” initiative and an important engine for promoting the “Belt and Road” initiative. On the other hand, the infrastructure construction in the “Belt and Road” initiative, especially the optimization of the infrastructure construction of the Maritime Silk Road, such as the optimization of port layout adjustment, the increase of route density, and the improvement of large-scale transportation, will directly promote China's shipping. Enterprise development.

For this reason, China's shipping companies should be closely integrated with the "Belt and Road" initiative. The framework of the “Belt and Road” construction is used as an important basis for corporate strategy optimization, transformation and upgrading; the route area of ​​the “Belt and Road” construction is used as an important breakthrough for shipping companies to develop markets and develop overseas businesses. Focus on the cooperation of the "Belt and Road" construction as an important driving force for shipping companies to serve customers and create value.

Establish a safeguard coordination mechanism to ensure the smooth implementation of the “Belt and Road” initiative.

The countries along the “Belt and Road” have huge differences in political systems, decision-making mechanisms, economic scale, economic development levels, development models, religious cultures, etc. It is bound to be complicated and difficult to coordinate the policies and interests of countries. While taking the "Belt and Road" east wind to "go global", China is also facing potential risks such as high risks, high investment, and many obstacles, as well as political and security risks. In addition, the “Belt and Road” is an important foundation for China to build a new pattern of opening up to the outside world. It is “integrated with both sides and complementary” with the construction of the free trade zone. Support is also inextricably linked to the comprehensive deepening of reforms and the strategy of strengthening the shipping nation. Therefore, we need to broaden our horizons, look farther, look at issues from a connected point of view, and ensure that the Belt and Road Initiative develops in concert with other regional development strategies.

In this regard, in addition to doing a good job of evaluation and paying close attention to policy and legal changes in China and related countries, Chinese shipping companies should also increase their sensitivity to market resources at home and abroad and give full play to their "peripheral nerves" that are most sensitive to market dynamics. Functions, collect information extensively, dig deeper into data, predict risk levels and expectations, and provide useful references for scientific decision-making.

At the same time, shipping companies should also establish guarantee coordination mechanisms for information and data security, capital circulation, department and enterprise coordination, and resource allocation, etc., to enhance the effectiveness and liquidity of the maritime system and the internal collaboration of the market, and continuously expand synergies and collect Market dynamics, policy news, and an information communication and sharing platform to ensure the smooth implementation and comprehensive advancement of the “Belt and Road” initiative.
