Seventeen representatives from ASRY's 14 ship repair agencies are shown above meeting for the first time in Bahrain. It was a truly international meeting with the 14 different agency nationalities being entertained by Arab Shipbuilding & Repair Yard management, which is Arab, Portuguese, and British, as well as ASRY's chairman, Bahrain's Minister of Works, Power and Water, His Excellency Majid Al-Jishi.
The purpose of their visit was threefold: (1) To discuss the new sales package presented to them by ASRY. It is anticipated that this package will result in the booking of at least seven vessels into the ASRY drydock before the Inaugural Ceremony on December 16, 1977. (2) To see the ASRY drydock in the final stages of construction and to witness, first-hand, the first-class and upto- date shops and the equipment which has been installed in the ASRY shops. (3) To familiarize themselves with Bahrain—its climate, amenities, local customs and topography.
ASRY's worldwide agency network consists of the following countries and their agents: Benelux— Euro Shipbuilders & Marine Agencies; Brazil — Sonave S.A.- Comercio E Industria; Denmark— Aktieselskabet Maritime Agency; France—Bigard le Grand S.A.; Germany—Wilhelm Schmidt, Ingenieur- Dock-Werftburo; Greece —N. Bogdanos Marine Bureau; Hong Kong—Island Navigation Corp.; Italy, Monte Carlo and Switzerland—Agenzia Marittima Cambiaso Risso; Japan—Nissho- Iwai Co. Limited; Norway—Henning Astrup A/S; Spain—Fernando de Azqueta Bernar; Sweden and Finland—A.B. August Leffler & Son; U.K.—Keller, Bryant & Co.; and USA—Bethlehem Steel Corp.
The ASRY agents' agenda included a visit to the ASRY yard, a tour of Bahrain to see dhow building, hand pottery and weaving, as well as Bahrain's existing infrastructure and industrialization.
Functions were held at the Hilton Hotel, and meetings at the ASRY offices were followed by buffet lunch and dinner at the Delmon and Gulf Hotels, respectively.
The reaction by the agents to ASRY and Bahrain was one of amazement. One was heard to say, "I thought I was coming to a stinking hot sand pit in the middle of nowhere, only to find the Garden of Eden, a beautiful climate and a fantastic yard."
