China Shipping Group Company Chairman honoured


Mr. Xu Lirong, Chairman of China Shipping (Group) Company, was honoured with the Seatrade Personality of the Year award at the 7th Seatrade Asia Awards held in Singapore on April 7. 
Just over 350 top shipping executives from the local and regional shipping community gathered at the glittering ceremony, where 16 awards were presented in total.
Commenting on the honour, Mr. Chris Hayman, Chairman of Seatrade, said: “Mr. Xu is an outstanding leader in China’s shipping industry, with extensive experience in container shipping and corporate management and a strong commitment to corporate social responsibility.”

Besides, Mr. Patrick Phoon, President of the Singapore Shipping Association and Deputy MD of Evergreen Shipping Agency (Singapore) Pte Ltd., was presented with the Seatrade Lifetime Achievement Award. 
“Seatrade is delighted to recognise the achievements and dedication of Mr. Patrick Phoon, to the shipping community,” added Mr. Hayman.
“In 40 years’ service in shipping, Mr. Patrick has been a major contributor to the development to the maritime community here in Singapore and across Asia,” he stated.

Seatrade also honoured Mr. Sean Lee, Group CEO of Marco Polo Marine Limited, who spearheaded the Singapore public listing of Marco Polo Marine which is today very active in vessel owning and chartering, shipyard operations and recently made its foray into owning drillingrigs.

The 7th Seatrade Asia Awards was certainly a night of celebrations and recognition of positive contributions and efforts of many individuals and Corporates. The mood at the ceremony was buoyant and upbeat and suitably lifted when Editor of Seatrade Global and Seatrade Asia Week Marcus Hand shared his keen analysis and observations, noting that the overall picture of the shipping industry is getting more positive.

As in previous years, the awards were adjudicated by an independent panel of judges who are all experienced senior executives in Asian shipping. Launched in 2008, the Seatrade Asia Awards is organised by Seatrade, the pioneer of shipping award schemes since 1988. The awards serve to recognise and reward achievements and meritorious activities in the Asian shipping industry.
