Anglo-Eastern's Peter Cremers new HKSOA Chairman

Hong Kong: Last night's 51st Hong Kong Shipowners Association Annual General Meeting saw Peter Cremers (pictured left) of Anglo-Eastern Ship Management elected to succeed David Koo (pictured right) as chairman of the association. Taking over the meeting as incoming chairman, Cremers said "I know I am speaking on behalf of all members when extending my sincere congratulations to David Koo on his highly successful and energetic two years of distinguished service as chairman." 

He went on to praise Koo for enthusiastically promoting the Association and Hong Kong's maritime sector within Hong Kong, in the mainland and internationally despite a hectic work schedule and other commitments. Koo, who completed two years as chairman, now holds the position of patron of the HKSOA.

Kenneth Koo of Tai Chong Cheang Steamship was elected deputy chairman in place of Cremers, while Liu Guoyuan of COSCO (HK) Shipping was re-elected as ordinary member vice chairman. Other elections included Alastair MacAulay of Johnson Stokes & Master as associate member vice chairman and Tung Chee-hwa, vice chairman of the CPPCC and a past chairman of the association was appointed honorary member.

In addition to the various appointments, the members also approved The HKSOA accounts for 2006/07 and agreed that there would be no increase in subscription as the preliminary budget for the financial year 2007/08 indicated that the association would continue to run a small surplus.  [23/11/07]
