InterManager, the international trade association which represents third party and in-house ship managers, added its voice to the global praise for seafarers and the work they do.
Speaking on the International Day Of The Seafarer, InterManager Secretary General, Captain Kuba Szymanski, said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to sing the praises of the world’s seafarers.
“Without seafarers there would be no shipping industry – and that means there would be no cars, gas or electricity anywhere! Too often these guys are out of sight and therefore out of mind.
“On this special day let us remember the 1.5million seafarers around the world and thank them for their continuing hard work.”
