Ann Fenech’s reappointment took place during the CMI General Assembly held in Genoa at the beginning of September, which entrusted her to serve for another two year term as one of the 13 members of the CMI’s Executive Council.

The Comité Maritime International is the oldest organization in the world that is exclusively concerned with the unification of maritime law and related commercial practices. Founded in 1897, CMI has been responsible for the developing and drafting of most international maritime law instruments over the last century. To this effect, CMI also enjoys observer status at the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
Since her appointment two years ago, Ann Fenech has also been appointed as chair of the CMI International Working Group (IWG) on Ship Financing Security Practices. She delivered a presentation at the CMI/AIDIM Seminar, wherein she gave a detailed overview of the work carried out by the said IWG over the last year.
The Conference was very well attended with more than 200 maritime lawyers from all over the globe.
