PIANC Asian Seminar 2022 (Report)

Outline

PIANC-Japan successfully held the PIANC Asian Seminar 2022 on 27 May 2022. This seminar, the second of its kind, was organized as a webinar open to the world, mainly targeting Asian engineers. This time, we invited top-ranking researchers and experts in Asian region as lecturers in the Seminar featuring "Toward Sustainable and Smart Marine Infrastructure - Maintenance Technology for Concrete Port Infrastructure - " With the support of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT), the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), a total of 280 people from 17 countries/regions participated in the Seminar and gained a deeper understanding of maintenance technology for concrete port infrastructures. About 80 people attended the Seminar from overseas (mostly from the Philippines, Cambodia, Bangladesh, Myanmar and Indonesia), and thus we have achieved a big success as an international seminar.
