World Maritime University Gets Massive Donation


Korea’s Shipowners’ Association (KSA) made a donation of US$50,000 to the World Maritime University (WMU) recently in a bid to develop maritime education.

It was previously reported by PTI that 16 students were recently awarded with the Howe Yoon Chong PSA Scholarship.

The donation was handed over by Youn-jae Lee, Chairman of KSA, at a ceremony attended by Cleopatra Doumibia-Henry President Designate of WMU and Neil Bellefontaine, the current president. Both expressed their gratitude as well as their desire to maintain strong relations with KSA.

WMU moved into Malmö city earlier this month and KSA’s donation will be used to furbish the university’s cafeteria which has now been named ‘KSA Hall’.

KSA maintains strong relationships with WMU as more than 80 Korean shipping professionals have graduated from the university.

The alumni includes Ki-tack Lim, President of the Busan Port Authority and a current candidate for the role of IMO secretary general, as well as Young-moo Kim who is the current secretary general of the Federation of Korean Maritime Industries.

KSA is committed to assisting with the development of the international maritime industry and to promoting Korea’s shipping industry globally.
