IRI celebrates reaching milestone

May 02 2014

International Registries Inc (IRI) and its affiliates, who provide administrative and technical support to the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) Registry, will be celebrating passing the 100 mill gt milestone at two major shipping events in China.

IRI will host receptions at the Asia Shipping Fortune Summit taking place in Shanghai from 13th-14th May and the World Shipping (China) Summit in the Autumn.  
“We are delighted to celebrate this landmark achievement with shipowners and other industry stakeholders in the Chinese maritime community,” said Annie Ng, IRI’s head of Asia. “Since 2011, there has been, on average, a 20% increase in the number of Chinese owners in the RMI fleet, due to the shipyards and other maritime services companies in China that have expanded their global reach and influence.” 
The RMI Registry is the third largest in the world and now stands at over 102 mill gt with more than 3,100 vessels.
“While the RMI Registry’s largest shipowning countries include Greece, the US, Germany and Norway, we have been very happy to see tonnage coming out of the Far East,” said Ng.
The RMI Registry claims to be the only major open registry to be included on the White Lists of both the Paris and Tokyo MoUs and to hold Qualship 21 status with the US Coast Guard for nine consecutive years.
“The RMI Registry is committed to our owners and operators in China and will continue to provide strong support to this developing market,” concluded Ng.
