INTERTANKO addresses Malaysian Marine Department World Maritime Day lunch in Kuala Lumpur

The guest of honour at a lunch on 24 September in Kuala Lumpur at the invitation of the Marine Department, Malaysia, and the Malaysian Institute of Maritime Affairs for the event was Malaysia’s Deputy Minister for Transport, YB Mulia Dato' Seri Tengku Azlan ibni Sultan Abu Bakar.  

Lunchtime addresses were given by the Chairman of the Malaysian Shipowners’ Association Tuan Haji Nordin Mat Yusof, and by INTERTANKO’s General Counsel and Regional Manager Asia-Pacific John Fawcett-Ellis. The latter’s presentation, “International Shipping – Carrier of World Trade”, covered the increased politicisation of shipping regulation, the trend toward criminalising accidental oil spills as well as safety and security in the Straits of Malacca.
