Commodore Sanguinetti commented that the event 'provided a very useful platform for the exchange of knowledge and experience. It was reassuring to, once again, witness first-hand the high regard in which the Port of Gibraltar is held across the shipping community, particularly for its bunkering best practice.'
Minister for Shipping, the Hon Albert Isola added that 'attendance at such high profile events underpins the Government's robust marketing strategy, reinforcing the port's reputation and builds on the strong relations the GPA enjoys with the global shipping fraternity'.
During his time in the maritime city state of Singapore, Commodore Sanguinetti also held meetings with a number of ship owners and operators and attended an LNG session and lunch hosted by Shell Marine.
