Our CEO, Mr. Rudy Andrew Jeyaraj was recently appointed by the Chairman of MASA and EXCO members to represent MASA and participate in the Ship Insurance and Liability Committee (SILC).
For better understanding, The Asian Shipowners’ Forum (ASF) was founded in April 1992 (recently renamed Asian Shipowners’ Association- ASA) when the first meeting was held at Japan Shipping Club in Tokyo. As an important and major shipping organization in the world, ASA consists of eight members from the shipowners’ associations of Asia Pacific nations, i.e. Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, Chinese Taipei and Federation of ASEAN Shipowners’ Associations (FASA) which consist of Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
Five standing committees are formed in ASA and each is headed by a nominated chairman. They are the Seafarers Committee (SC), Shipping Economics Review Committee (SERC), Ship Insurance & Liability Committee (SILC), Safe Navigation & Environment Committee (SNEC) and Ship Recycling committee (SRC). The activities of the committees are basically done between the annual ASA meetings, with each committee being committed to convene at least one meeting a year.
