HONG KONG SHIPOWNERS ASSOCIATION

香港船東會

Introduction

The Hong Kong Shipowners Association was incorporated in 1957 by 11 local shipowners with the purpose of creating a forum for shipowners resident in Hong Kong.  Over the past 63 years, the Association has grown into one of the world’s largest Shipowner Associations, its members owning, managing and/or operating a fleet with a combined carrying capacity of over 200 million deadweight tonnes.

 

The Association welcomes into Associate membership Hong Kong resident companies supplying services to the shipping industry.  The composition of membership has enhanced the credibility of the Association within the local community and has given breadth and experience to its international status and relationships.

 

The Association arranges forums in which members are able to meet and discuss issues of concern, informs the membership of important changes in the shipping environment through educational seminars and circulars, and represents the interests of members in national and international meetings.  The Association is a member of the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS),  Asian Shipowners Association (ASA) and INTERTANKO, and cooperates closely with, amongst others, the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) through the Hong Kong Marine Department and the ICS, the International Labour Organisation (ILO),  BIMCO, INTERCARGO, the International Maritime Industries Forum (IMIF), and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) through the International Maritime Bureau (IMB).

 

The Association’s chief purpose is to promote and protect the interests of the Hong Kong domiciled shipowners and ship managers as well as the large number of local professions and services upon whom they rely in the performance of their business.
