17.10.2018 Cyprus Shipping Chamber monthly meeting.

At 17th of October 2018 Mr. Adam Barecki participated in the October Member’s meeting. The CSC and the U.S. Embassy in Nicosia co-organized a ceremony to recognize shipping companies participating in the U.S. Coast Guard’s voluntary AMVER program.

Few words about AMVER or Automated Mutual-Assistance Vessel Rescue System is a worldwide voluntary reporting system sponsored by the United States Coast Guard. It is a computer-based global ship reporting system used worldwide by search and rescue authorities to arrange for assistance to persons in distress at sea.

Political Economic Chief of the U.S. Embassy Mr. Daniel Wartko presented the awards on behalf of the U.S. Coast Guard, recognizing participating mariners and the companies they represent.  In his remarks, Mr. Wartko said “AMVER is an excellent example of mutual assistance and partnership.  Instead of relying solely on specialized rescue operations provided by governments or official organizations—which can be overburdened or far away from the point of need—AMVER provides a way for whoever is in the area to help out.  AMVER’s success in protecting lives and property at sea stems from international cooperation between ships, companies, communication service providers, governments, and, of course, search-and-rescue authorities.”

In this year, the 17 Cyprus-based companies received awards for their participation in AMVER in 2017 year.
