Mr Peterside is taking over from Mr Sobantu Tilayi, who is presently the Acting Chief Executive Officer of the South African Maritime Administration.

With the election of the NIMASA boss, the chances of Nigeria getting into Category C of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) Council, is now high.

Meanwhile, the next edition of the conference is scheduled to take place in Egypt in 2018.
