Please find attached a copy of the monthly bulletin from Seacurus. Inside we assess the impact of “World Maritime Day” as we explore the success, but also the challenges facing the International Maritime Organization, flag States and shipping if improvements are to be made and rules implemented.
Inside this issue we also explore the latest issues besetting shipping, from the concern that too few tankers are taking to Electronic Chart Display & Information System (ECDIS), the fears of the International Union of Marine Insurers (IUMI) when it comes to underwriting, and the threat posed to shipping by fraud and crime.
We also assess the latest piracy news – as shipping companies chip in to try and solve Somalia, it seems that however many millions are thrown in, the country is a long and tough fix. Out in Asia there are more concerns as yet another tanker is taken, while West African governments are rallying to put in place measure to secure the region.
