ABOUT WEBINAR –
According to the new assessment by the International Labor Organization (ILO), the COVID 19 crisis could increase global unemployment by almost 25 million. Shipping Industry contributes to 90% of global trade by volume, including transportation of raw materials, food, medical goods, and energy.
During these unprecedented times, the Shipping sector remains primarily affected, struggling hard to cope with the current situation and finding the best possible ways to keep the crew safe while maintaining the essential services moving. The companies continue to face more significant challenges and risks when it comes to crisis and people management. Even after the pandemic is under control, they will continue to struggle with the uncertain financial future, labor issues, and the legal aftermath.
