EU’s Borg Headlines ISSA Convention

Thursday, July 12, 2007
EU Commissioner Dr Joe Borg is set for a public interface with global shipping luminaries when he addresses the International Ship Suppliers Association (ISSA) Convention to be held in Malta from October 18-21, 2007. Dr Borg served as Malta’s Foreign Minister before taking up his present post as EU Commissioner for Fisheries and Maritime Affairs. In a joint statement ISSA President Wim van Noortwijk and Alfred Borg, MSSA President, said: “Having Dr Borg in attendance should attract a number of extra people from the global shipowning community as well as from the ship supply sector.

“With Dr Borg speaking, the Convention will definitely be of great interest to delegates who wish to learn more about the EU’s interface with the shipping industry.”

Commissioner Borg will be joined at the Convention by a host of other headline names. Professor David Attard, a maritime law expert and Tapani Erling, Chairman of the Council of the World Customs Organization, will also be lending their expertise to the October event.
