Evergreen Group Chairman Honored

Wednesday, May 14, 2008

Evergreen Group Chairman Dr. Chang Yung-Fa was presented the honor of Commandeur de l'Ordre de la
Couronne (Commander of Order of the Crown) by the Belgian Minister of
Foreign Affairs, Karel De Gucht. The presentation was made on behalf of His
Majesty King Albert II and took place at a ceremony held in the Palais
d'Egmont in Brussels.
The award for Dr. Chang was conferred in recognition of his achievements,
contributions and innovations in international transportation and trade. He
is one of only a few non-Belgian individuals to be so recognized.
Evergreen's links with Belgium date back almost 30 years to when Evergreen
launched its first service to Northern Europe. The Belgian port of Antwerp
was a key call on the schedule and has remained a cornerstone of Evergreen's
global services. Today, Evergreen vessels call at two Belgian ports, Antwerp
and Zeebrugge.
