Cambodia and Laos Shipping Report Q1 2015

BMI View: Although the ports' infrastructure is limited in Myanmar and Cambodia, and Laos islandlocked, we feel that their booming economies and increasingly liberalised ports' sectors will providesignificant opportunities for the wider shipping sector. Stronger bilateral trade agreements, developingmanufacturing sectors and a wealth of natural resources are driving growth in outbound maritime freight,while consumer demand is supporting an uptick in container imports. As investment improves the portinfrastructure, we anticipate Myanmar and Cambodia will augment their connectivity, and this will in turnbenefit Laos.

Myanmar has strong fundamentals, in our view, with good trade connections across the region, andoccupying the ideal position to become a regional transport hub. The improving economic openness isencouraging investment and driving the development of the country's various hydrocarbon, mineral andagricultural commodities, which we feel will drive growth in bulk throughput over the next few years. Inaddition, container volumes are set to soar, due to increased consumer demand for imported goods, inconjunction with the recovery of Myanmar's textile and garment manufacturing industries, which form asignificant portion of the country's container exports. However, until the expansions of the various existingports, and the development of new ports, shipping lines will continue to be deterred by the poor portinfrastructure, shallow drafts and severe congestion, In addition to the higher costs and delays necessitatedby transhipment from larger vessels before being freighted to Myanmar.
