The United Arab Emirates Shipping Association (UAESA) joined the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) during the Seatrade Shiptech event at the Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai, UAE.

UAESA and ICS on September 24 signed an agreement that will provide a framework for closer collaboration between the two associations.

It outlines the roles that UAESA and ICS will have to represent shipowners and operators in all shipping sectors and trades across the global and regional organisations, regulators and other bodies which impact and affect the interests of international shipping.

“The UAE has been leading the way when it comes to the energy transition. As the ICS looks to shape the future of shipping we can only benefit from the experience and leadership that the UAE is providing at this time of transformation for the maritime sector,” Esben Poulsson, ICS Chairman, said.

“The ICS has a large number of full and associated members and thus a near worldwide network. When I say “nearly” I mean that so far the Middle East has not been represented and I am happy to close this gap and to offer UAE-based shipowners a platform to voice their concerns and opinions and to be heard,” Chairman Capt. Abdulkareem Al Mesabi, UAESA chairman, said.
