Since this is my last full working week in INTERTANKO, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the members for five very interesting and rewarding years.

As you know, I have enjoyed working for and with you all and I feel we have achieved a lot. And our numbers are that much greater! Over 2,000 ships and more than 300 associate members is evidence of excellent industry support for a united industry association.

I hope you will continue to support and contribute to the effectiveness and capabilities of INTERTANKO. What makes INTERTANKO so unique and strong is its membership - more specifically, your direct and personal commitment in every activity of the Association; your enthusiasm and valuable contributions in our committees, panels and working groups; and the vigorous interest shown in the activities of the secretariat under the guidance of the Council, the Executive Committee and the Chairman.

These five years have been very rewarding for me and I take with me many good memories. I am also privileged to have made so many personal friendships during my time at INTERTANKO. I wish you all the best of luck in life and business in the years to come. Also, many thanks for all the good wishes and messages of appreciation you have sent me over the last four weeks.

I will continue to follow developments in the tanker industry closely from my new vantage point at DVB NedshipBank, and I hope that we will have the opportunity to meet and exchange views in future. Who knows, we might even be able to do a little business!?

Happy sailing!
