1. Modern heroes at sea
Seafaring is highly regarded as a risky and physically demanding career but Filipino seafarers have unique & innate ability to cope easily with difficult situations at sea. These characteristics win the hearts of foreign shipowners hence they hire us to man their fleet. We are the preferred choice for in one way or the other, we know how to go the extra mile and make a difference.
2. Race with sealegs
Whether the weather is good or whether the weather is bad, Filipino seafarers are men of steel. The hard work, courage and determination we possess serve as our ticket to fly high and be recognized globally as catalysts of positive change.
Moreover, we toil not only to support our own families but also for community building, The remittances we’re sending home is one of the primary source of the country’s income.
3. Global keyplayers
One European Maritime Shipping Agency (EMSA) audit in the past had showed that the Philippines should exert more effort to standardize its seafarers, particularly our training and education. We’re about to be blacklisted but a light of hope had stroked through the overcast sky when European shipping magnates plead not to cease hiring Filipino seafarers. What happened shows that we’re worth a weight of gold! For our part, we should humbly recognize our worth and continuously develop our strengths.
