Gao Weijie takes the chair for LR in China

Gao Weijie takes the chair for LR in China

Hong Kong: In a stunning signing for the British classification society, Lloyd's Register has unveiled Cosco veteran Gao Weijie as its chairman of China operations, a position specially created to accommodate the new man. To be based in Beijing, Gao will be the firm's so called 'China expert'. With 42 years experience at Cosco, most recently heading up the Americas division, Gao further cements LR's close ties with the mainland's largest shipping firm. Just last month the 10,000 teu LR-classed Cosco Asia vessel was delivered from HHI, a new high point in Cosco's drive up the container rankings.  [14/08/07]
