IMO Secretary-General joins ISSA to welcome in LISW19

ISSA was honoured to welcome the Secretary-General of the International Maritime Organization to its official cocktail reception at the Baltic Exchange to mark the start of London International Shipping Week 2019.

Mr Kitack Lim met with representatives from the ISSA Board as well as some of the 40 invited guests at the function. With over 20,000 people attending in excess of 200 events, LISW 2019 was a very busy time and we were very grateful that the Secretary General took the time out to join our event.

Other important guests included Denis Petropoulos, Chairman of The Baltic Exchange, as well as Olav Nortun, CEO of the Thome Group. ISSA would like to thank Samson Ropes for their sponsorship of the cocktail event. Their help was greatly appreciated.

ISSA President Saeed Al Malik was also a guest of Her Majesty’s Government at the Banqueting House the next day, where he joined 500 other industry VIPs to welcome in the week’s events. The guest speaker was Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal.
