Loss Prevention seminar, Taipei
On Tuesday 19th September our Loss Prevention team held a seminar and drinks reception at The Sherwood Hotel, Taipei which aimed to provide an insight into the departments global reach, commitment to safety, offsetting rising claims and maintaining membership quality.
The event included an in depth study into collisions with fishing boats, including advice on claims handling and associated local legal issues.
The seminar was well attended with delegates from the Taiwan shipping community and also featured a short Q&A session.
