POSIDONIA ROUND-UP

In addition to the official programme, at the Posidonia event INTERTANKO held a tanker chartering seminar, media management seminars, and a meeting of its Environmental Committee.

INTERTANKO's Executive Committee member K.H. Koo and former Chairman Richard du Moulin participated as speakers in the Posidonia Congress addressing regional developments in the Far East and the industry's public relations challenge.

The Tanker Chartering Seminar in Athens had a record attendance of over 80 participants primarily drawn from tanker operators who are members of INTERTANKO’s Hellenic Forum but also attendees from Germany, Cyprus, Turkey, Singapore and the US. INTERTANKO was represented by Svein Ringbakken and John Fawcett-Ellis.

Four full-day media management training courses were arranged for tanker owners and the INTERTANKO Environmental Committee held its 14th meeting in Piraeus on 5 June with Peter Swift and Tim Wilkins representing INTERTANKO. The Committee's full-day agenda included extensive discussions on INTERTANKO's Environmental Challenge and our activities in the debate around emission trading. A full report from the Committee will be given in the Weekly NEWS next week.

A number of meetings with members and associate members also took place during the Posidonia week.
