Mariners joins observance of International Day of Seafarers


Metro Manila – The Mariners System, thru its allied institutions, the Mariners Polytechnic Colleges Foundation (MPCF) in Legazpi City, Albay and in Canaman, Camarines Sur, the Mariners Polytechnic Colleges (MPC) in Naga City, The Mariners Polytechnic Training Centers (MPTC) in Metro Manila and Cavite, the Globalmanpower Management and Development Corporation and the UNLAD Ship Manning Management Corporation in the metropolis joins this activity as the world observes the International Day of Seafarers.

Every 25th day of June, the maritime community celebrates the International Day of Seafarers.

This event is observed to honor the men and women who work in this sector, to give them due recognition of their accomplishments and contributions to the seafaring profession, to business and to the well-being of people in the world.

Almost half a million Filipinos work in this industry worldwide whether in Cruise Ships, Cargo Ships or Passenger Vessels and we in the Philippines have every reason to celebrate. This profession continues to contribute to the economy of the nation, enhancing the quality of lives of Filipino families and thereby contributing to nation building.

Included in the event is the giving of honor to seamen who have perished in sea mishaps and other departed maritime workers who have left imprint to the maritime industry thru their tireless pioneering efforts which have made the maritime industry what it is today.

The occasion also offers an opportunity for the governments of nations in the world to review the welfare of industry workers who man the ocean-going sea vessels. Without the seafarers, the world will not be as what it is today. In the realm of transporting bulk cargo, no other means can be as effective and less expensive as what the maritime system of haulage can offer.

The Mariners System continues to push its advocacy to be the center of excellence when it comes to maritime education in the Bicol Region.

Lately, an ultra-modern electronics and globally-connected Library for Safe Seafaring (L4SS), a grant given by the European-based Elsevier Foundation to the Mariners schools has been established. This makes a difference when it comes to the learning competence and research capabilities of our students and faculty; this is one of its kind when it comes to its being advanced. The school, it was confirmed, is the only recipient of this grant in the entire Southeast Asia from Elsevier.

“I send my felicitations to all industry stakeholders as Mariners System joins the International Maritime Organization, the Filipino Seafarers and their families and the maritime community all over the world in the observance and celebration of ‘International Day of Seafarers’, declared Commodore Dante La. Jimenez, President of Mariners Polytechnic Colleges Foundation (MPCF) in Legazpi City, Albay and Canaman, Camarines Sur. ###
