Association Luncheon and AMVER Awards Ceremony - Wednesday, 18th October 2023
Please find attached our invitation to the Association Luncheon .
AMVER, the Automated Mutual-Assistance Vessel Rescue System sponsored by the United States Coast Guard, is a unique, computer-based and voluntary global ship reporting system used worldwide by search and rescue authorities to arrange for assistance to persons in distress at sea.
With Amver, rescue coordinators can identify participating ships in the area of distress and divert the best-suited ship or ships to respond. Hence, the Amver’s mission is to quickly provide, on demand, search and rescue authorities with accurate information on the positions and characteristics of vessels near a reported distress.
This luncheon event is an occasion for the United States Coast Guard to recognise ships operated or managed by companies in Hong Kong that have supported the Amver system over the past year.
This year, we have Mr. Colin Crosby from the U.S. Consulate to present the awards.
