Asian recognition for Island's ship registry

There's new recognition of the Isle of Man Ship Registry from Asia.

It comes from the Korean Register of Shipping (KR) for its efforts to engage more closely with the continent.

Mr Joosung Park, who's based at the register’s London office, visited the Island recently to present a gold ‘plaque of appreciation’ to director of the Island's registry, Dick Welsh.

KR promotes safe ships and clean oceans by developing shipping technology, shipbuilding and other industrial services, as well as developing staff that work in the industry.

Mr Welsh says it's an honour to receive the accolade from such a prestigious organisation.
