The SMMTA board will discuss that the possibility of Van Der Mark replacing Mingo on its board based on the association’s constitution and the board’s opinion.

Mingo said he would “continue to strive for the synergy of working together. For me, the Marine Sector is largely represented by both the cruise/yachting segment.” To that end, a study will be carried out by Consultancy firm KPMG for both the Cruise and Yachting Sector, paid for by the Harbour Group. This would be used as a planning as strategy guide for investments and upgrading.
