Australian Shipowners AssociationThe Australian Shipowners Association (ASA) represent Australian companies who own or operate international and/or domestic trading ships, cruise ships, domestic towage and salvage tugs, dredges, scientific research vessels and offshore oil and gas support vessels. The Association also represents employers of the Australian and international maritime labour. Our mission is to promote the role of Australian shipping providing sustainable shipping and internationally competitive sea transport services for the benefit of Australia.
ASA congratulate the new AMSA CEO, Mick Kinley and commend Deputy Prime Minister Truss on an outstanding appointment.
CLOSING DOWN LOCAL SHIP BUILDING IS NOT COMMERCIAL FOR AN ISLAND NATION. The Australian Shipowners support Premier Jay Weatherill’s call for a coordinated and constructive approach to be developed between the States and key industry associations to ensure major defence projects are not tendered overseas.
