27th Annual Conference- Hot Topics in Maritime Legislation

The conference was held on Tuesday 23rd May began with a keynote speech from Commissioner Rebecca Dye from the Federal Maritime Commission and ended with one from Roxana Lesovici from the EU Commission. We had a presentation from our very own Council member, Dr. Ann Fenech, now President of the Comite Maritime International, during the cocktail hour and many interesting and stimulating sessions in between. Comments including “the best conference yet” and “so many interesting topics” abounded and judging by the number of attendees who stayed to the very end, the event was a great success. Thank you to everyone who took part and who attended. For those of you unable to make it here are links to the speeches and slides you missed.
