AMTAC Address 2019 Flyer

The Australian Maritime and Transport Arbitration Commission (AMTAC), invites all members and supporters of both AMTAC and ACICA to attend the AMTAC Annual Address for 2019 which is to be held on 26 September 2019, commencing at 5:30 pm.

This year, the Annual Address will be delivered by Ms Amy Gulhot, Assistant Secretary, Agriculture and Food Trade, Office of Trade Negotiations, Dept of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and will focus on what the Australian government is doing to try and bring stability and certainty to exporters/shippers given the current global trading environment.

Ten per cent of the world’s sea trade passes through Australian ports and over 95% of Australian exports are transported by sea. Maritime transportation is the means by which Australia and Australian traders (especially exporters) participate in the global trading environment. AMTAC’s objectives include the facilitation of international and domestic arbitration and mediation of maritime and transport disputes, and in this way, AMTAC aims to support not only the participants of the maritime transportation itself, but also the importers, exporters and traders who rely upon that industry. In those circumstances, it is timely to consider what is being done to assist these users of maritime transportation, especially in connection with Australian export industries.

Deatails for the Annual Address are:

Speaker: Ms Amy Guihot, Assistant Secretary, Agriculture and Food Trade, Office of Trade Negotiations, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade

Date: Thursday, 26 September 2019
Time: 5:15 pm for 5:30pm, concluding by 6:30pm AEST
