Two years ago, Mark Williams, fresh from his own Covid-19 infection, came to Monaco to tell us:

Covid-19 could wipe half a percentage point or more from China’s GDP
Nevertheless, China would be growing its control of global shipping and its own seaborne supply chains, through activities like leasing
The bulk carrier market cycle was resetting and it was Time to Buy Bulkers
IMO 2020 meant it was time to hedge bunker costs, but not necessarily to invest in scrubbers

You can assess for yourself the accuracy of his predictions.

Undeterred, two years later he is back (online, as per the mode du jour) with five predictions for 2022, covering

Why 2022 is a seminal year for the Energy Transition
Why the EU ETS is the new IMO 2020
Whether there will be a post-pandemic trade bounce
Whether tankers, bulkers, or containerships represent the best value
