THE Senate yesterday passed a measure strengthening the country’s “foothold” on the maritime manpower
industry by giving all administrative functions pertaining to the training and certification of over 400,000
Filipino seafarers to the Maritime Industry Authority (MARINA).
THE demand for Filipino crews to man privately-owned yacht in the European
region is growing. Belinda C. Wong, Eurasian Maritime Corp. president, gave this
observation during an interview last week. Eurasian Maritime Corporation is a
Cebu-based personnel recruitment agency supplying manpower to privately-owned
yacht in Europe specifically areas South of France and Greece.
