Dispatches No. 74

Please visit our website and submit your petition to your local government to END THE PIRACY
www.intermanager.org

We are very pleased to advise that InterManager new website is going from strength to strength. We have now crossed the magic number of 600 registered users. Having said that I still believe that we are not getting to “people with hands in grease”, I mean Fleet Managers, Operations Managers, Crew Managers, people who could actually gain most from your company membership in our Association. Why do I say that? Because I can see how many of our members DO NOT take advantage of our great conference and seminar deals. These discounts would easily pay off the membership fees.
Could I therefore kindly ask you to advise your “troops” to check Dispatches and register with our web for piece of info they might be interested in.

This Week:

12 October – London – British Chamber of Shipping – ‘A Ministerial Speech on UK responses to Piracy off the Coast of Somalia’ – Kuba Szymanski representing.
This was extremely good meeting with Henry Bellingham MP, British Minister for Africa. British Chamber of Shipping gathered excellent panel and great crowd attended rather dynamic meeting.
Issues discussed:
– UN participation – no prospects for similar actions like in Yugoslavia or Libya, however UN is fully supporting smaller scale operations
– UK is leading and spending a lot of money and resources, however this will not last forever
– All agreed that Somalia Piracy issue can only be solved by actions ashore
– There is a danger that having Private Security Guards will “manage” the issue and therefore some countries may “relax” now and withdraw their support
