Southern Phoenix came into Suva Harbour on March 7 and discharged 211 metric tonnes of cargo. She loaded 387 metric tonnes in turn. She was last in Tawara and headed for Funafuti yesterday.

The Fiji Ship Owners and Agency Association have announced a new board to follow on the work done by its predecessors.

Jeffrey Lin, chief executive officer of Shipping Services (Fiji) Limited (the agent which represents Maersk Line), is the new chairperson.

The appointment was made following the association’s board meeting the past Wednesday.

The appointments are mandatory as is a protocol the Executive Committee where it is rotated annually amongst the member agencies.

Mr Lin said the new team will continue work in the best interest of the members who had worked their best to ‘raise the bar’ for the association.

“There are also a few matters still outstanding with the various statutory bodies which the association would like to get some closure on so the immediate plan is to work through these,” he said.

“The association would like to acknowledge the exceptional work by the immediate past executive committee comprising of Craig Strong, Rona Campbell, Bradley Bower and Ronal Kumar.”

The Fiji Ship Owners and Agents Association is made up of locally-registered shipping agents for shipping lines and vessels that service Fiji.

The main differentiating aspect of the association from that of the local ship owners association is that it represents vessels that trade internationally.

The association has been in existing for about 20 years.

The association represents a unified voice in which agents can collectively air views and broach issues that affect shipping in Fiji.

These range from Fiji Ports Terminal Limited, quarantine and customs issues as well as those that require work with other associations or government regulatory bodies.
