The time of our 76th Conference and Seminar Meeting in Nigeria is approaching fast – sails are set, schedules are ready. Here is the welcome address of our host which illustrates the degree of huge changes which happen in Nigeria and demonstrates the need for such international events:
As your host, I am pleased to welcome you in advance, on behalf of Tolmann Allied Services Co LTD. We are privileged to host dignitaries such as you, to the Garden City of Nigeria, popularly called Port- Harcourt City. It is our desire to ensure that every minute spent with us is worth the visit.
During the conference, we will be considering the topic “Safety at Sea.” Safety is an essential resource in our daily activities to achieve set goals at minimal risk. Due to activities in the maritime industry, seafarers must be well informed, especially in the area of maritime and navigational training and operations.
The topic is carefully chosen considering the volume of activity at sea. This is against the backdrop that Nigeria recently obtained an FID for the train 7 NLNG Project. This project is expected to create no fewer than 200,000 direct jobs, 90% of which is the sea time activities across the supply chain.
As the IASST in-Country Representative in Nigeria, we are honored to welcome you to the 76th Conference and Seminar Meeting of the IASST come 1st – 5th April 2020. Looking forward to welcoming you all in Port-Harcourt Nigeria.
Sir Emmanuel Onyekwena, IASST Country Representative, Nigeria
