Orji Uzo-Kalu Becomes President Of World Ship Owners Association (WSA) by investnow2013: 9:14pm On Oct 16, 2015
World Shipowners’ Association (WSA) has appointed Nigeria-born Forbes billionaire and President of Slok Group, Orji Uzor Kalu as interim president of the body.

Kalu, an eminent businessman and former governor of Abia State will occupy the position pending the election of substantive officials at the proposed Marine Conference scheduled for Greece in Q3 2017
The maritime industry globally is set to meet its full potential following the unveiling of an umbrella body for all national, regional and international associations of ship owners called World Shipowners’ Association (WSA).

The association which was established in furtherance to the adoption of the agreement of the international maritime round table (IMRT) held in Washington DC, USA, on Monday, October 2, 2015, had in attendance mainly owners of container ships, bulk carriers, tankers, fishing vessels, barges, specialized ships and ferries from 29 countries, including the United States of America, Canada, United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Russia, Nigeria, Denmark, Norway and others.
In a press release signed by WSA’s interim Director of Strategy and Communications, Isaac Marshall, he acknowledged the efforts of stakeholders in advocating regional and international co-operation among national and regional bodies towards the growth and development of marine business globally, noting that the association will primarily serve as the universal representative of the shipping industry worldwide.

The statement reads in part: “Today, we are excited to announce the birth of the much-awaited international co-operation among players in the maritime industry. WSA is now a reality with a resolve to sustain the interests of ship owners in order to serve the global economy in an atmosphere of healthy business competition to the advantage of consumers and stakeholders.

“The new body was conceptualised and established by mainly owners of Offshore Supply Vessels and big players in the marine business as a partner to maritime bodies including the International Maritime Organisation in order to build a sustainable marine platform for the advancement of the global economy.

“WSA is committed to strategic collaboration with partners across the globe in order to meet the expectations of industry stakeholders by actively engaging existing and potential individual and corporate members, trade bodies and regulators.
“At the maritime round table, an interim team headed by Nigeria-born Forbes billionaire and President of Slok Group, Orji Kalu, was unanimously appointed.”

Marshall said the team would be coordinating the activities of the global shipping body from Abuja, Nigeria. The team‘s mandate is to effectively drive membership and engagement of existing maritime associations across the world towards the inauguration of national and regional secretariats across the globe and advocacy visits to the United Nations agencies, African Export-Import Bank, Export-Import Bank of the United States, among others. The interim team is also expected to set up steering committees for various purposes in order to run an all-inclusive and sustainable business platform.

“Membership of the association will attract limitless benefits including business networking, pressure group for the advancement of shipping cause, common mentality, market intelligence, access to industry publications globally, access to policy and decision makers, human capital development, group negotiations on transactions, among others”.
Other members of the team are Romanian Forbes billionaire, Gabriel Popoviciu (Treasurer), Isaac Marshall (Director, Strategy and Communications), Mr. Thomas Cheng (Head of Government and Regulatory Affairs), Al-Fayed Hassan (Head of Membership and Partnerships) and Tiffany Richmond (Head of Administration and Legal), it was gathered.

why? Abia is not a center of commerce. If he is to do any business, it should be in Abuja, Lagos, Portharcourt or Kano.
Ibadan could be included too. Not in any city in the east.

Gentle men before you people kill oji, remember a few years ago when oji invested in an airline, slok airline and what came out of it. A certain cretin in the person of obasanjo woke up one day and investments running into billions were made to shut down the same would have gone after sun news but for the uproar gagging the press would generate.

Oji wealth is diffused in many African countries and in the maritime business, oji will play a key role in the economic empowerment and emancipation of the igbos,

Ask Abia people what this guy did to Abia State. Such a person would not even be considered by any proper Igbo nationalist so I don't know why people are asking this same person who has entered the Forbes list by cheating and stealing from Igbo children to come and "invest" in the same lands he left barren. It is under this man that Aba became the urban disaster that it is now and which it is trying to recover from. He is the same one that funded the destabilisation of Abia through kidnapping because he failed to keep control of the other thief TA.

Please, talk better thing like how can the Igbo people collectively remove demons like Orji or use them to the advantage of the Igbo people in some kind of subversive way. This guy is simply worse than all your northern and so on so called enemies that you say are hindering your advancement.
