The Director General MAJ, Rear Admiral Peter Brady, commenting on Kramer' s appointment, said: "German ship owners are of great interest to the MAJ as
potential clients. The JSR is a quality register accepting only quality
ships to fly the Jamaican flag. We believe that Mr Kramer's appointment will
help us to demonstrate to German owners that we share their belief in high
quality of service from the flag state to which they entrust their ships."
Kramer joins similar JSR Deputy Registrars in Rotterdam, Cyprus, Greece,
Monaco and London.
Alec Crawford, the JSR's London-based International Marketing Director

very large and, as yet for us, untapped market. He will fill an important
role in ensuring that we can provide owners in Europe with updated
information about the registry of ships under the Jamaican flag, as well as
facilitating a smooth registration procedure."
