WISTA UAE Group DP World Event

Press Release
Thursday, November 15, 2012

WISTA (Women’s International Shipping & Trading Association) UAE Chapter announce forthcoming meeting, port tour.

WISTA is an international organisation for women in management positions involved in maritime transportation business and related trades. It regularly organises events for its members in venues not open to the public; on a ship, in an engine room, in a port or even a drydock with great speakers and networking opportunities for the ladies in the shipping community.

This time the President of WISTA UAE, Mrs. Jasamin Fichte has collaborated with DP World and P&O Maritime to organise a rather large event for its members taking place at DP World on Sunday, 18 November, 2012.

The  event starts with a DP World bus trip to the Wheelhouse followed by a welcome presentation by DP World and a special introductory presentation about WISTA by Mrs. Jasamin Fichte and an informal address by Mr. Mohammed Sharaf, a prominent personality in the shipping community, and CEO of DP World.

The actual WSTA meeting will start after lunch and WISTA delegates will discuss important topics and issues concerning WISTA UAE. The most exciting part of the event, left for the end, will be the port tour provided by P&O Maritime with buses and boats.

WISTA UAE was established in 2010 and as the first WISTA organisation in the Middle East has by now more than 30 active members on board. The UAE chapter’s mission is to raise awareness of the Middle East shipping industry amongst professional women inside the country and abroad, to encourage more to join the maritime & trading sector and to build a network platform for women within a mainly male dominated industry.
