It is a great pleasure to witness another group of Bunker Professionals
organising a local association. It is an even greater pleasure that there is
such an interest in having a close tie with the International Bunker Industry
IBIA was formed 13 years ago and has grown steadily. The aims of the
Association are: -
To provide an international forum to address the concerns of all sectors of
the international bunker industry
To improve and clarify industry practices and documentation
To represent the industry in discussions with relevant governmental and
non-governmental bodies and to make the concerns of the industry known to such
To assist members in the event of disputes by identifying the options and
exploring the alternatives open to them and eventually to provide a panel of
suitably experienced mediators and arbitrators
To increase the professional understanding and competence of those working
in the industry.
IBIA currently has 17 Russian Members and we look forward to welcoming more
as a result of close relations with the Association of Marine & River Bunker
Suppliers. Our industry is a truly global one. However, we at IBIA also
recognise the value of local knowledge, especially when dealing with local
issues. That is why I believe by working together we can achieve the best
possible results for our industry.
