Tanker Event 2006 – Guest of Honour: Singapore Minister of Transport

INTERTANKO is pleased to announce that the Singapore Tanker Event 2006, which will be held at the exclusive Four Seasons Hotel, will be opened by Mr. Yeo Cheow Tong, Minister of Transport, Republic of Singapore.

Keynote addresses will be delivered by Brig. Gen. Tay Lim Heng, Chief Executive, Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA); Mr. Simon Yang, Deputy Director Research & Development, COSCO and Dr. Martin Stopford, Managing Director, Clarkson Research.

The Market Session promises to be interactive as delegates respond to presentations from panellists including Erik M. Andersen, Director, R.S. Platou Shipbrokers A.S.; Louisa Follis, Director, SSY Consultancy & Research; Paul Horsnell, Head of Commodities Research London, Barclays Capital; Odd Anker Hassel, Director, Cambridge Energy Research Associates (CERA).

On Thursday morning March 30, a special workshop will be held on “Vessel Pollution Enforcement - Problems and Solutions.” It will be led by Richard A. Udell, Senior Trial Attorney, Environmental Crimes Section, U.S. Department of Justice, and Jonathan Benner, Partner of U.S. law firm Troutman Sanders in Washington DC.

Response from heads of industry invited by INTERTANKO’s Chairman Stephen Van Dyck to join INTERTANKO members and work together in a sustained commitment to continuous improvement, and address participants in the Poseidon Challenge sessions on Friday March 31, has been very good. If we, as an industry, are to take our future into our own hands with a serious commitment to continuous improvement, then we need to be here joining in discussions with the people who head up each sector and make our industry tick - ranging from the Chairman of IACS to the President of the International Salvage Union or the President of the WorldMaritimeUniversity.

Social events include a Welcome Reception in the glamorous gilded interior and exclusive courtyard of the art-deco Divine Society; informal drinks and dinner, with stunning views of Singapore’s tallest skyscrapers and across the water to Boat Quay, on the terrace of the Asian Civilisation Museum and in the Indochine Waterfront restaurant;

and the Association’s Annual Gala Dinner in the splendid Fullerton Hotel.
