The sixth edition of the Port Expansion Summit was organized by Noppen Group, a leading international company facilitating businesses across Asia, Europe, Africa, and Latin America. The summit gathered government officials, investors, port authorities, and port & terminal operators from Southeast Asia to discuss with consultants, architects, construction companies, equipment providers, and service groups, in order to better explore the market and support port developments which are moving into the Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR4.0).

The theme of the summit focuses on port expansion in Southeast Asia, therefore a few major topics were discussed, such as the challenges and opportunities of building and expanding major port projects in Southeast Asia, and alternative port management structures and ownership models.
