SOLOMON Islands Women in Maritime Association (SIWIMA) is officially launching its setup today.
In a recent interview, Solomon Islands Maritime Safety Administration (SIMSA) Director Captain Tim Harris briefly explains the detail of this association.
“SIWIMA is different from SIMSA, and it has its own constitutions, aims and missions.”
Mr Harris said its aim is to raise women working in the Solomon Islands Maritime Industry and to enable all working individuals to have equal opportunity and also to promote women in this sector.
Also SIWIMA is to create national support system to raise awareness and advocate issues concerning women’s empowerment and gender equality.
