EMAC presents inaugural seminar on marine casualties
Seminar discusses topic from an insurance perspective
Emirates Maritime Arbitration Centre kicks off its first breakfast after the summer period with a presentation on marine casualties from an insurance perspective. Speakers, Bengi Yuceer, Regional Head of Marine Claims and Vivek Sharan, Regional Marine Client Director both from Howden Insurance Brokers LLC focused the talk on recent casualties and events in shipping, the status of the insurance market and future outlook, as well as casualty management in insurance claims.
“Marine Insurance, is one of the oldest forms of insurance. Insurance brokers are faced with a multitude of shipping claims on a daily basis, hence a talk of this nature is key to understanding operational risks and how to manage issues when they do arise, be it through insurance or dispute resolution. At EMAC it is our responsibility to provide a platform for informative industry discussion, opinions and knowledge building,” said Mr. Majid Obaid bin Bashir, Chairman and Secretary General, EMAC.
The team at EMAC will remain active through their participation on each day of the
UAE Maritme Week beginning with the Dubai Maritime Agenda on 22 September, Seatrade Offshore Marine and Workboats on 23 September, the Marine Insurance Conference on 24 September and Maritime Law Conference on 25 September. Through this participation, it is clear that EMAC remains committed to ensuring that the industry knows about the Centre’s support and services.
The next Breakfast with EMAC seminar will continue on 20 October, co-hosted with Clyde&Co.
