World Class Filipino Seafarers Set to Capture Half of Global Seafaring/Manning Jobs

Saturday, February 5, 2011

Filipino seafarers are amongst the best in the world. The Philippine seafaring industry has long been providing highly skilled seafarers and currently makes up at least 30% of the mariners worldwide.

The industry is seriously targeting 50% of mariner jobs globally in the next few years. Leaders of the Joint Manning Group (JMG), the umbrella organization of seabased manning agencies in the Filipinos, shared the heavy investments for world class training modules and training facilities, enabling Filipino seamen to handle the most sophisticated sea vehicles in the world. Filipinos are capable ship handlers from captains to mates.

These efforts of the stakeholders in the seafaring and manning industry will surely boost the stock of Filipino mariners amongst shipping companies leading to more seaman jobs. These efforts should be lauded and should be continued.

Shipping companies worldwide can entrust their ships to Filipino seafarers because they are highly competent and highly motivated to perform really well.

I have a few seaman friends who have worked across the world seas. Most of them have risen in rank because they continuosly train and upgrade their knowledge and skill whenever they can during their stay in the Philippines. I feel proud of the contributions of Filipino mariners/seafarers in world.
