Building a Universal Ship Trading Platform (“USP”)

 Institute of Seatransport  

海運學會

RE : EVENING SEMINAR ON 7th March 2017

All members, non-members and guests are cordially invited to attend our coming evening seminar, details of which are set up below:

Topic:         Building a Universal Ship Trading Platform (“USP”)

Speaker: Capt. Peter Chu Chi Tung

Date & Time: 7 March 2017 (Tuesday) 1830 - 2030 hrs.

Venue: No. 1 Conference Room, 37/F., China Merchants Tower,

Shun Tak Centre, 152-155 Connaught Road C., Hong Kong

Language: Cantonese, Mandarin, English

Charge:         $50/person for Members, $100/ person for Non-Members

Free of charge for Young Members

 

About the Speaker

Capt. Peter Chu, Director of South Express Ltd.

In 1966 Peter set his foot on a foreign going ship as cadet, since then ship has become a part of his life. He trained the crew and assessed the competency for their certificates; he surveyed ships and carried out casualty investigations; enforced marine legislation; took part in marine arbitration; gave witness in local and foreign courts. In the recent days, his company handles ships for demolition and second hand trading, as well as other related shipping projects.

About the Talk

Facing a mushroom of Fintech innovations in online trading nowadays, can we trade ships on the Internet? The answer is positive. It will bring down trading cost and operation cost substantially. Moreover, it can avoid most disputes arising from ambiguous terms.  Paradoxically, these terms are implanted by both parties (often represented by brokers) with an original intent to complete a deal. These implantations have always transformed a well-tested standard contract into distorted terms making room for arguments. One primary objective of the USP is to avoid or at

least minimize such ambiguity. Capt. Chu will explain the idea in more details in the seminar, by quoting some contractual terms and illustrating operational problems commonly encountered in the existing system.  Questions (on sale and purchase) as well as challenges to the idea of USP will be discussed.

For those interested persons, please kindly send back the Return Slip for enrolment to Institute of Seatransport before 1st March 2017 for our appropriate arrangement.

We thank you for your attention and look forward to seeing you all in that evening.

Yours faithfully,

 

Chan Kam Wing / Activities Sub-Committee

MARITIME MEDIATION – the Concerns and Challenges On Monday, 18th May 2015

MARITIME MEDIATION the Concerns and Challenges

On Monday, 18th May 2015

 

Law Society of Hong Kong CPD points being applied for

 

Time: 1830 - 2000

Venue: No. 1 Conference Room of China Merchants Group

  37 Floor, China Merchants Tower, Shun Tak Centre

  168-200 Connaught Road Central, Hong Kong

Fee: Members HK$50.00 per person;  Non-members $100 per person

 

About the Speaker

Mr. Jonathan Lux of the Stone Chambers

After retiring from Messrs. Ince & Co. as a partner and having practising shipping law, insurance law and handling many arbitrations and mediations, Mr. Lux became a Barrister and joined the Stone Chambers in 2011.  He is an active arbitrator and mediator in England and Wales, and, is also on the panel of arbitrators of the HK International Arbitration Centre.  He has lectured widely and written numerous articles on the subject of mediation, and is co-author of ADR (Alternate Dispute Resolution) and Commercial Disputes.  He had been invited to speak in international conferences in various places including China.   

 

About the Talk

The theme of the presentation is on that mediation is being strongly endorsed by the Courts but is insufficiently endorsed by arbitrators.  Mr. Lux therefore will look at whether Arbitrators have the power to stay arbitration proceedings to allow mediation to occur and whether, indeed, they may have a duty to do so where the interests of justice so require e.g. where the costs of arbitration risk becoming disproportionate to the amounts in issue.

 

Registration is on a first-come-first-serve basis.  Please send the reply slip before or by 13th May 2015 to info@seatransport.org or by fax: 2581 0004 for enrollment.
