Welcome to our latest edition of the GANADO Shipping and Maritime Law Newsletter, the last one for year 2016.
In this issue, we are pleased to launch the first video as part of a new series aimed at updating our followers on interesting shipping matters through video communication.
We report on the Maritime Labour Convention amendments to protect seafarers against abandonment, the introduction of European maritime spatial planning and Malta’s first ever international Maritime Summit, that was held in October. We also report on GANADO Advocates’ recent involvement in the Sale of m.y. Free Wings and its registration with the Malta Flag, the appointment of Dr Daniel Aquilina as Chairman of Malta Marittima Agency and the visit of a group of young lawyers to GANADO Advocates’ offices in Valletta, as part of a study tour to Malta.
Feel free to get in touch with us should you require any further information on any of the reports in this edition. We also welcome feedback and suggestions.
Dr Jotham Scerri-Diacono
