CREWING - THE CRISIS CONTINUES - IS THERE AN END IN SIGHT?
The crewing crisis is a global issue - but the implementation involves international organizations, national jurisdictions, charterers, shipowners and more. The recent crisis in India has elevated the crewing crisis to a new height. The current situation shows the urgency and importance to coordinate all stakeholders into streamlining policy making at an international level and achieving implementation across the board. Is this possible - and how can be it done so we can move from discussion to resolutions?
