Members of the American P&I Club have elected the first director to come from The People’s Republic of China (PRC). At the annual meeting in New York, Lianyu Zhu of CCCC International Shipping Corporation, Tianjin, was elected to the board for the forthcoming year.

Mr. Zhu’s company is a subsidiary of China Communications Construction Company, a major state-owned enterprise (SOE) which is, among other things, the largest port construction and design company in the PRC. The election highlights the American Club’s continuing growth in China in particular and Asia in general, supported by its Shanghai office which it opened in 2007.

Servet Yardimci of the Yardimci Group, Istanbul, retired from the board, having been first elected a director in 2000.

At the following board meeting, J. Arnold Witte of Donjon Marine Co. Inc. and Markos Marinakis of Marinakis Chartering Inc., were reelected chairman and deputy chairman, respectively; and Joe Hughes, chairman and ceo of the club’s managers, SCB Inc., was reelected as secretary to the board.
