Key personnel from RMI offices in Hong Kong, Houston, London, New York, Piraeus, Reston, and Singapore met in Oslo for the celebration. The reception was held at Bølgen & Moi and was attended by over 400 industry representatives from shipowners and operators, Classification Societies, banks, law firms, press and other maritime organizations..
IRI representatives learned during the week of Nor-Shipping that the RMI Registry had recently overtaken Liberia and moved into the position of the second largest registry in the world in terms of both gross and deadweight tonnage. The RMI Registry’s reception at Nor-Shipping celebrated this great achievement with the shipping community who made it possible.
