WMD 2015

World Maritime Day 2015 will be observed under the theme, “Maritime Education and Training”. This year’s theme is even more fitting at a time when the Shipping Association of Guyana is zooming in on its advocacy for the shipping industry in Guyana especially as it relates to the modernization of the ports in Georgetown. SAG has, in the past, endeavored to focus attention on the importance of maritime safety and security, and to emphasize on the development of linkages within the local commercial sector. The Shipping Association believes that education and training are essential for the long term sustainability of the sector, both at sea and on-shore. It is with this in mind, that the Association has placed some emphasis on its own training programmes over the past year.
