INTERTANKO has started the new millennium as it finished the last - closely involved with several major initiatives aimed at improving maritime safety and environmental protection, whilst at the same time promoting the best interests of the tanker owner. If anything, the pace of events was even more hectic in 2000 than during any of the last few, busy years of the previous decade. Not only have the many issues thrown up by the sinking of the tanker Erika in December 1999 been on the agenda, but also a number of important developments within INTERTANKO itself.

Once again, the considerable progress made by INTERTANKO during the year was achieved as a result of the commitment and capabilities of our membership. I would like to thank you all, on behalf of the staff here in Oslo and in our various offices, for your strong support in 2000 and for the time and effort you have given of so freely through the INTERTANKO committees and regional panels.

This is the last Weekly NEWS for this year and all INTERTANKO staff join with me in extending to you and your family Seasons Greetings and Best Wishes for a Happy and Profitable New Year.

Kind regards

Svein Ringbakken
