Furthermore, The day main objective is to give thanks to seafarers for their contribution to the world economy and the civil society, also for the risks and personal costs they bear while on their jobs at sea.

 

Keeping to the  day of seafarers resolution

 

To keep to this resolution, IMO took to their official page and social media such as  Twitter and Facebook in 2011,2012 etc, calling on the general public for their support for seafarers and to thank them for their splendid works. Base on this call, we also contribute to voice out about this amazing day mapped out for our humble, lovely and fearless men and women at sea.

We at Marine and Offshore Insight team are to mark this year seafarers day by offering a job post which we will share and/or sponsored by us, across maritime shipping companies and social media.

Also will call on all maritime companies, owners, ex-seafarers, friends, and well-wishers to give their maximum support to these men and women who took the risk upon them to support the world economy.

When the post will be live online, we shall post it on our facebook page and twitter.
