Shipowners welcome introduction of Bills

22nd Mar 2012

The Australian Shipowners Association (ASA) has welcomed the introduction of Bills this morning by Minister Albanese that combined make up the Government’s shipping reform package.

“The Australian Shipowners Association supports the Government’s package of reforms which are aimed at providing a competitive environment for Australian shipowners and operators.” said ASA’s Executive Director, Ms Teresa Lloyd.

“The focus of the Government on shipping for the past four years to reach this point is greatly appreciated by the industry and today represents another milestone in moving toward a new paradigm for Australian shipping.” said Ms Lloyd.

The design of the complete shipping reform package is aimed to level the playing field by making Australian shipping more competitive and consideration of the entire package is very important in that regard.

“ASA looks forward to the passage of the Bills through the parliament with support across the political spectrum.” said Ms Lloyd
