The Solomon Islands Maritime Transport Association (SIMTA) welcomes females to join in the shipping industry
Representative from SIMTA Mr David Faradatolo said it is good to have female folks through the newly launched woman in Maritime association
He said women’s presence in this sector will enable male folks to develop the industry
“As ship owners we welcome female seafarers and encourage them to work in this association to make it successful and grow.
“Because through the association you (women) will be able to advocate for innovative means and alternatives which the industry needs to develop,” Mr Faradatolo said.
He said the involvement of women in this sector will now help men to boost this industry to be recognised by other neighbouring countries in terms of working partnerships.
