(23 Mar 2017) South Korea announced on Thursday a fresh capital injection for Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering Co., seeking to prevent the world's second-largest shipbuilder from defaulting on its debts. The injection of 2.9 trillion won (2.6 billion US dollars) in additional loans will prevent Daewoo from going bankrupt when some of its debt matures next month, which could have had a damaging impact on the economy, the Financial Supervisory Commission said in a statement. This new bailout will be followed by voluntary debt restructuring among Daewoo's creditors and a further push to shut down loss-making businesses, such as offshore drilling. It is unclear if this latest rescue will be a lifeline for Daewoo or merely delay its demise. A total of 1.6 trillion won (1.4 billi...

한국 조선 빅 3 주춤, 중국 시장 점유율 맹추격 There was a time when it seemed Korean shipbuilders would forever stay on top in any category related to the business. The stark reality is the industry has been experiencing severe downturns,... and the country's three biggest shipbuilders are struggling. Hyundai, Daewoo and Samsung Heavy Industries used to hold a combined 70 percent of the market. But Chinese rivals have taken 40 percent out of that pie, with Yangzijiang Shipbuilding, the only Chinese shipbuilder that's not state-owned... spearheading the charge. Japanese shipbuilders were struggling to maintain a ten-percent share ten-years ago, but they, too, are recovering at an alarming rate. Japan's Imabari Shipbuilding has even managed to dethrone Samsung, which struggled last month with an order backlog...
The head of the French firm helping to build Australia’s $50 billion fleet of new submarines has admitted it faces a significant battle to find a qualified and experienced local workforce. Herve Guillou, CEO of French firm Naval Group, told Fairfax Media this week that the firm is practically having to recruit workers “one-by-one”. While there are many young, university-educated people they can train from scratch, older and experienced managers are hard to find. “My worry is always that people confuse education with experience. These are very, very different,” he said. “Finding people with a diploma is not so difficult, finding people with experience and managerial skills is more difficult … It’s nearly a one-by-one exercise.” Naval Group – formerly called DCNS – won the contract last year...
