Dott. Paolo d’Amico will be chairing the meeting for the seventh time, guiding the Committee through the major environmental issues on INTERTANKO’s work programme.

Following the Environmental Challenge session, the Committee will then be meeting with Dr. Simon Walmsley from the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to discuss the future work and continued good relations between INTERTANKO and the environmental organisation.

To round off the meeting a workshop session led by Ms. Joanne Ellis and Dr. Ehsan Mesbahi from the MARTOB Ballast Treatment Project will include discussion on the safety and practical issues which need to be considered when fitting the more advanced ballast treatment systems.

This course introduces the concept of the ‘20 key question areas’ that are of interest to the media and looks at ways of dealing with the perception and reality in relation to the subjects. An introduction is also made to the ‘down-the-line’ television interview and press conference.

Date:                   5 February 2004
Cost:                   USD 775 per person.

Venue:                    INTERTANKO London Office, St Clare House, 30-33 Minories, London
