Tokyo - INTERTANKO Executive Committee

The second INTERTANKO Executive Committee meeting of 2009 was held on 13 May 2009 during the Tokyo Tanker Event. The Association’s Chairman Nicholas G. Fistes chaired the meeting.


As with the first meeting of the year which took place in January in Dubai, two issues continue to dominate the agenda:


1.   Piracy, in particular the use of armed guards


2.  Greenhouse gas emissions from shipping, including options for market-based instruments for control of emissions.


Further important issues, including the criminalisation of seafarers and the erosion of established international liability regimes, were highlighted for discussion at INTERTANKO’s Council meeting which took place later in the day.
