Vijayendra Parvataneni takes charge as youngest President of MANSA 
Mr Vijayendra Parvataneni has taken over the reins at Maritime Association of Nationwide Shipping Agencies (MANSA) as the unanimously elected President from Capt. Ram Iyer at the annual general meeting held last week. 
Mr R. Subramaniam Swamy and Mr Sanjay Dalvi were also unanimously elected as Vice Presidents for the two-year tenure. 
Outgoing President Capt. Ram Iyer in his speech shared few of the activities undertaken during the past year in MANSA’s endeavour to address issues with Port Community System, about Sea Cargo Manifest & Transport Regulations, and also with Mumbai Port and JN Port. 
Sharing his thoughts, Mr Vijayendra Parvataneni, the youngest member to be President of MANSA, said, “Our endeavour is to communicate with all maritime authorities and trade bodies and help our members navigate the change while supporting policymakers and regulators in the digitalisation push in our industry. We strongly believe that digitisation would contribute greatly to Ease of Doing Business and also enable our members as well as MANSA to evolve”. 
MANSA, for the first time ever since its inception 45 years ago, will have three lady members - Mousumi Guha, Pratiksha Meshram and Mitsu Damani - in its Executive Committee, highlighted a release.
