Steadfast support

I am writing this following the Singapore Maritime Week (SMW), where our IBIA Asia Dinner was also hosted as part of the event.

Amidst the vibrant atmosphere of the Singapore Maritime Week, the IBIA Asia Dinner proved to be a resounding success, drawing in 240 guests and members. It was particularly memorable with the esteemed presence of IMO Secretary General, Arsenio Dominguez, who graciously accepted our invitation to join us as our Special Guest for the evening, alongside Capt. Segar, MPA Assistant Chief Executive (Operations).

The IBIA Asia Dinner served as a gathering point for IBIA members, stakeholders, and partners from various segments of the maritime industry, fostering networking opportunities over delightful cuisine and beverages.

I extend my sincere appreciation to all attendees for their steadfast support. Special thanks go to our sponsors: Bunker Partner (Platinum Sponsor), Equatorial Marine Fuel Management Services (Gold Sponsor), and Peninsula (Silver Sponsor), whose support was instrumental in making this event a success.

Our IBIA Executive Director, Alexander, also joined us during that week to gain first-hand experience of the dynamic and vibrant atmosphere of SMW and the industry here in Asia.

Additionally, we had the privilege of being invited to tour the Green Pioneer, the world’s first ammonia-powered ship. During the tour, we had the opportunity to meet the Fortescue team behind these pioneering efforts and innovations driving positive change within the maritime sector.

As advocates for sustainable practices and responsible bunkering, we remain committed to supporting initiatives that promote environmental stewardship and contribute to a greener and more sustainable future for our industry.

As we continue navigating the ever-changing landscape of the maritime industry, let us stay unwavering in our pursuit of innovation, collaboration, and sustainability. Together, we can propel our industry towards a more resilient and environmentally conscious future.
