Shanghai office for BIMCO

Singapore: The leading shipwoner organization, BIMCO, is planning to open up its third office. The launch of the Shanghai office is scheduled for February next year, and goes alongside headquarters Copenhagen and Asian shipping hub, Singapore, where BIMCO opened an office in 2008. The China office will be headed up by Wei Zhuang, a Dalian Maritime University graduate, who has been with BIMCO in Copenhagen for the past two years. Thomas Timlen, Asia liason officer for BIMCO in Singapore, told SinoShip News, “The opening of a China office is in recognition of the shift towards Asia, with China playing a big role. Having someone Chinese run it will help raise BIMCO’s profile and also help our members understand the local regulatory environment.”  [26/09/12]
