    Growth. Change. Movement. The heart of a dynamic system is, to a great extent,

    movement. As individuals, institutions and companies, we all experience movement of one kind or another every day. Movement is an essential part of the natural world as well, as witnessed by the perpetual and incessantly flowing currents of water and air throughout our planet.

    When we combine movement with a defined purpose, we are then involved in strategy, the characteristic of sophisticated and successful systems.

    It is this kind of movement—that with a strategic purpose—that character- izes the course of Aegean’s development during the past two decades.

    Marking this development is a unique combination of growth within a diverse set of business activities: a retail service station network in Greece; the manufacture and distribution of automotive, industrial, commercial and marine lubricants; ship ownership and shipping management; extensive envi- ronmental services; international trade in petroleum products; and the world’s largest independent bunkering operations.

    Today, Aegean is implementing a new growth strategy by entering the Liq- uid Natural Gas market (LNG). By positioning itself within the LNG market, Aegean is establishing another cornerstone of its global business interests. This “movement” places Aegean among the few companies that have exceptional international leverage, flexibility and diversity.

    The growth of Aegean is concurrent with change within its global outlook. And such change benefits the company's business partners everywhere.

    Aegean—Built on growth and respect for the environment. Energy for tomorrow.

    Hong Kong Shipowners Association and

    led by Sabrina Chao, the Deputy Chairman

    of the Association and Chairman of Wah

    Hong Kong Maritime Industry Council

    and InvestHK, and included senior repre-

    sentatives of the Hong Kong and Chinese

    banking, shipbuilding and legal sectors.

    The purpose of this delegation was to

    re-introduce the Hong Kong market and promote the vital “super-connector” role that Hong

    Kong plays between Chinese maritime industries and the rest of the world.

    The delegation also had the support of the Hong Kong government and comprised the follow-

    ing delegates:

    • Sabrina Chao, Chairman Wah Kwong Maritime Transport Holdings Ltd, Deputy Chairman of

    the Hong Kong Shipowners Association and Member of the Maritime Industry Council

    • Arthur Bowring, Managing Director of the Hong Kong Shipowners Association

    • Benjamin Wong, Head of Transport and Industrial, InvestHK

    • Raymond Chung, Permanent Representative to the IMO for Hong Kong SAR

    • Jimmy Sun, Deputy General Manager, Bank of China (Hong Kong) Ltd

    • Pakco Lam, Team Head, Corporate Banking and Product Management Department, Bank of

    China (Hong Kong) Ltd

    M/T Rizopon Launches Yet Another Immigrant Rescue Operation On September 28, 2015, follow-

    ing the instructions of the Italian

    Maritime Rescue Coordination Center,

    Aegean's ASM tanker M/T Rizopon,

    while drifting off Zawia, launched a

    rescue operation of 150 immigrants.

    The 133 men, ten women and seven

    children were found aboard an inflat-

    able boat in the waters between

    Italy and Libya. The M/T Rizopon

    approached the inflatable boat and

    tied it to the side of the ship. The

    crew offered the immigrants food,

    water and milk, and remained at the

    site until the Italian coastguard vessel

    arrived to pick them up.

    Once again, we are proud of the

    Captain, Officers and crew and we

    congratulate them for the way they

    handle such incidents, which unfortu-

    nately take place often in the waters

    between Italy and Libya.
