Albanian Seafarers Navigating on the STCW White List


Since Albania became part of the IMO-STCW White List (MSC.1/Circ.1163/Rev.8, 7 January 2013), this new situation have brought to our country, huge opportunities of work for the new generation, especially for those who want to see their job carrier, focused on the shipping sector. This market actually is globally faced to our seafarers. Now they are in front of a huge working competition, worldwide and it’s very important to show how able they are, to win the respect and the interest of the ship owners. This new situation is like a first stage for us, are requested huge efforts and willing to introduce our seafarers as good and experienced sea-workers. It’s not simple but we've trust, taking in to account the advantages we offer for the ship-owners, in relations with cost salaries, geographic position, new age and knowledge of foreign languages, for sure we’ll be able to make part in the Mediterranean region as a competitive nation of the shipping sector.
