Middle East Branch seminar in Bahrain
Posted on Monday, March 26, 2018
The Bahrain Ship Agents Association (BSAA) and Institute of
Chartered Shipbrokers - Middle East Branch jointly organized a
seminar in Bahrain on 26th March 2018. This event was
well received with over 30 professionals attending from various
company members of BSAA.
The initiative generated a lot of enthusiasm among the
participants who demanded to have more academic / professional
events in Bahrain. BSAA is also considering a regular plan of
academic activities aimed at raising the standards of practitioners
The seminar was the result of some good work by the leadership
team of BSAA and in particular, the General Secretary, Mr Ravindu
Rodrigo together with the Middle East branch team of the Institute
of Chartered Shipbrokers.
Mr Krishnan Subramaniam, President of the Institute - ME Branch
highlighted the importance of career development and continuous
education. Updating the industry trends and networking are
essential for professionals to stay competitive.
Mr Krishna Prasad, Vice President of the ICS - ME Branch made a
presentation on Bill of Lading and its relevance in Ocean
Transport. The presentation was followed by an interactive session
with prospective students explaining the various programmes offered
by the Institute.
A second session dedicated to potential Institute students gave
to the branch representatives the opportunity to illustrate the ICS
qualification system, exam options, etc.
The feedback was encouraging and we hope to put Bahrain on the
Institute map of its regular Examination centres.
