Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) group seafarer manning company Magsaysay MOL Marine (MMM) held a Family Day for Filipino seafarers at an amusement complex in Manila, drawing about 3,250 seafarers and their families.

MOL also held a long-service awards presentation ceremony for Filipino seafarers who work for MMM in Manila. MOL Chairman Koichi Muto, MOL Senior Managing Executive Officer Akihiko Ono, MOL Managing Executive Officer Masanori Kato, and executives of MOL group's ship management companies attended both events.

Family Day was held at an amusement complex in Manila, drawing about 3,250 seafarers and their families. MOL Chairman Koichi Muto expressed his gratitude to the seafarers and their families for their support of safe operations, and noted that seafarers at the venue support daily life all over the world through their service in the ocean transport industry.

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.
