In this article, Board Member Godwin Xerri sheds light on Malta’s admirable performance in the Shipping Industry State Performance Table 2020/2021 published by the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS). The ICS is the global trade association for ship owners and ship operators representing over 80% of the world merchant fleet with 100,000 vessels. The comparative analysis of all the flags of ship registration is published annually to give ship owners an independent and professional assessment of how the flags have discharged their duties to the international shipping industry and how they have operated to safeguard life at sea and the environment. Mr Xerri explains how the fact that the Malta Flag passes all the tests gives all Maltese reason to be proud of and which factors have led to the success story of this national asset.
