Stakeholders gear up for Maritime Week celebration

Iloilo City (5 August) -- The Maritime Industry Authority 6 (MARINA 6), Women in Maritime-Philippines (WIMAPHIL) Western Visayas Chapter and other stakeholders in the maritime industry met recently to discuss preparations for the Maritime Week celebration on September 22- 28, 2008 in the region.

This year's celebration theme "60 Years of IMO: the Philippines, a Responsible Member" aimed to focus on three vital issues affecting the maritime industry both in the domestic and international scene such as maritime labor shortage, maritime incidents/accidents and maritime pollution. However, the slogan "GO ZERO" was especially adopted by the MARINA administration to suit the celebration.

The week-long celebration in the region will be opened by a holy mass, followed by the blowing of ships horn and dressing of ships at port on September 22. Also, on the same day activities such foot parade, jobs fair and opening of a maritime exhibit will be conducted.

Other activities lined up during the week include medical mission, bowling tourney, maritime convention, search for a model cadet/cadette, film showing and a maritime skills Olympic.

Another activity set to be conducted is the mangrove planting which will be led by the PCG and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.

The support of the WIMAPHIL-WV is expected to further bolster the annual occasion as sectors collaterally affected by the maritime industry will also be given attention.

WIMAPHIL is an international organization primarily committed to serve, guide and protect the "interests of women" in the maritime arena. (MARINA/PIA) [top]
