NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 17 – The State Department for Shipping and Maritime and State Department for Youth have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding to facilitate the training and skills development for Kenyan youth seeking employment as seafarers on board international ships.

The signing ceremony was witnessed by Principal Secretaries for Shipping and Maritime Nancy Karigithu and Julius Korir of State Department for Youth.

According to Karigithu, the collaboration between the two departments will ensure skills development and linkages to job opportunities within the shipping and maritime sector.

She stated that the government is in the process of undertaking various activities aimed at revamping the maritime sector-more commonly referred to as the Blue Economy, in order to improve the social and economic wellbeing of Kenyans.

The PS hinted that the Memorandum of Understanding will also ensure access to financial support to eligible seafarers, who experience a lot of challenges in meeting mandatory ship pre-embarkation procedures.
