Maritime Law expert Professor Trevor Jones has been elected to the eThekwini Maritime Cluster’s Executive Board.

The Cluster held its annual general meeting recently during which a new board of directors was chosen.  The Directors contribute to improving the competitiveness of the Maritime industry thus promoting economic growth in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal and South Africa.

Jones, who has enjoyed a long association with the Cluster as a member of its education and skills sub-committee, said he was looking forward to serving as a board member.

‘In my role as a board member, I will wear two hats. I will represent the interests of the industry group, the International Bunker Industry Association, of which I am an executive member but my more fundamental role is to represent UKZN. So I would see myself as still having a significant role in in the education and skills development sector of the Cluster.’
