Efthimios Mitropoulos receives lifetime achievement award at Turkish "Golden Anchor" ceremony

The IMO Secretary General, Efthimios Mitropoulos, was recognised with a lifetime achievement award at the 2008 "Altin Çipa" (Golden Anchor) dinner in Istanbul last week.


In accepting this on behalf of the IMO, the Member States, observers and secretariat, he spoke of Turkey's recent successes, initiatives and achievements, across a wide spectrum of maritime industries and activities.


The Golden Anchor awards, sponsored by Dünya Gazetesi and Deniz Haber Ajansı, was the culmination of day-long activities organised for visiting senior representatives of IMO Member States and NGOs, the Paris MoU and the European Commission. The evening awards ceremony included the presentations to the winners by the visiting dignitaries, with INTERTANKO MD Peter Swift presenting the Environmental Award to the highly respected and deserving TURPMEPA association.
