Dr. Karla Peijs, Dutch Minister of Transport, to address INTERTANKO Council

Dr. Karla Peijs, Dutch Minister of Transport, Public Works and Water Management and Chairman of the European Transport Council, has accepted our invitation to address INTERTANKO’s Council at its dinner in Amsterdam on Wednesday, 27 October 2004.

At a time when the Netherlands holds the Presidency of the European Union, Dr. Peijs has shown a willingness to engage in an open and frank exchange of views with the maritime community. In a recent meeting with INTERTANKO, Dr. Peijs expressed her ambition to promote speedier ratification and implementation of IMO Conventions among EU Member States, as well as a commitment to ensuring international regulation at a time when regional and local legislation continue to challenge and distort the international framework within which ship owners operate.

The INTERTANKO Council meeting will take place 27-28 October in Amsterdam and Council members who have not yet registered are kindly requested to contact Anders Baardvik – for further details.
