Awards and recognition went to seafarers with 15 years of service aboard MOL-operated vessels, and a total of about 60 award recipients and their families attended. MOL Chairman Koichi Muto expressed appreciation for the contributions of the seafarers who play a key role in safe vessel operation, and their families who support them during their months away at sea. He added that he looks forward to them sharing their knowledge and experience with students at MOL Magsaysay Maritime Academy, which opened in August of this year.
The MOL Group regularly conducts such programs in the Philippines and other countries that are home to seafarers, striving to provide a pleasant working environment while expressing appreciation for their contributions to the group's success.
