SPNL Chairman, Claudio Chiste who works as a Shipping & Marine finance specialist at Investec Bank, said, “The strategic objectives are to promote competency for the next generation, as well as the promotion and enhancement of our maritime cluster. We seek to enhance our maritime cluster by creating a platform, in a relaxed – yet professional – setting for industry players from all aspects of shipping to engage in order to facilitate business.”
