Agencies as well as ship owners have spoken of the need to improve the training standards in a number of nations. At the same time, seafaring is a rewarding career and can provide respite to the increasing problem of unemployment in many countries.
Keeping this in mind, the Fisher report on human resource development in the Asia pacific implored governments and bodies to improve the standards of maritime training establishments in the Asia Pacific to be able to utilize its rich human potential as an answer to the worldwide shortage of qualified seafarers.
GlobalMET has been involved in trying to find solutions by working with stakeholders including the Asian Development Bank (ADB). We have been in discussion with ADB regarding this and hope that this will bear fruit, thus alleviating poverty in developing nations in the Asia Pacific.
GlobalMET has already conducted workshops in the Philippines since 2013 for maritime lecturers, through grants from the TK foundation thus helping them use newer pedagogic methods in imparting learning. We hope that through discussions with ADB, this can be taken further to its next logical level, thus improving training standards in the Asia Pacific.

If you would like to collaborate with GlobalMET on this, please contact the Chairman Capt. Pradeep Chawla using the contact form on this website, or by sending an email to secretariat@globalmet.org with the subject “Interest to participate in projects”
