The Filipino Shipowners Association (FSA) Joint Manning Group (JMG) honored IMO Secretary General Koji Sekimizu at a welcome lunch, held at the Manila Peninsula Hotel in Makati. Attended by stakeholders from the various sectors of the Philippine maritime industry, the event also featured discussions on crucial issues, which include the STCW Manila Amendments, the EMSA report on the country’s compliance to STCW requirements, anti-piracy efforts, and the importance of Filipino seafarers to the world’s merchant fleet.
