WSC strengthens in Asia and USA

WSC strengthens in Asia and USA

(Posted on 05/03/21)

To support its growing scope of activities across the globe, the World Shipping Council (WSC) has added two positions to its operations in Singapore, as well as welcoming a new colleague in the US.

In Singapore, WSC welcome Senior Manager Mun Wei Jun and Senior Executive Ang Shi En. They will both engage with WSC members, government regulators, other industry organizations, and international organizations on a broad range of policy matters including environment and climate, security, vessel and cargo safety, and customs regulations.

Wei Jun will lead Public Affairs in Asia. He will work closely with the Communications Director to develop and implement the WSC communications strategy throughout Asia. Wei Jun has a solid public policy background with focus on environmental, innovation and labour issues, most recently working for the Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) of Singapore where he, among other, represented Singapore at the IMO and the ILO.

Shi En will work closely with the Managing Director to support the Singapore office’s role to assist carriers and local associations on regulatory matters affecting liner shipping. She joins WSC from the Singapore Maritime Foundation, where she played a key role in the development of the Maritime Singapore Connect office.

"We are pleased to welcome Wei Jun and Shi En to WSC. Their experiences will greatly support our work in the Asia region as we continue to see growth in Liner Shipping and strengthen our partnership with local and regional shipping associations, governments, and other interested parties,” says Kenneth Chia, Managing Director Asia.

In the US, Joe Kramek joins the World Shipping Council as Director of U.S. Government Relations. He will work across policy topics to represent WSC and our members in dialogue with the different branches of the US government. Joe has extensive experience in both government relations and maritime law, serving as a U.S. Coast Guard commissioned officer for twenty-eight years. Most recently he led the Coast Guard Legislative Affairs Team and also served as the Chief of Maritime, International and Environmental Law where, among other duties, he led the U.S. Delegation to the International Maritime Organization’s Legal Committee.
