Brigadier General Tay Lim Heng, chief executive of the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), officially welcomed North of England P&I club to the island nation last week. He was speaking on behalf of guests at a major reception held at Raffles Hotel on 6 September 2007 to celebrate the ‘A’ rated, 75 million GT club’s new representative office opening. In addition to MPA, organizations represented at the event included the Monetary Authority of Singapore and the Ministry of Transport as well as prominent local shipowners, brokers and law firms. North of England managing director Rodney Eccleston, deputy managing director Alan Wilson, claims director Ian Henderson, regional underwriting director Thya Kathiravel and regional general manager Alan Lo (based in Hong Kong) also attended. Brigadier General Tay went on to highlight the initiatives which the Singapore authorities had put in place to encourage maritime business in Singapore and to promote the island as the main maritime hub in the Asia-Pacific region.

The club’s new representative office is at 80 Anson Road #26-04, Fuji Xerox Towers, Singapore 079907, telephone +65 6411 0160, fax +65 6224 0160. It is managed by claims specialist and master mariner Iain Beange, assisted by FD&D lawyer Chris Metcalf and administrator Elizabeth Er. A local claims executive is currently being recruited to augment the team.
