Protecting seafarer rights and promoting employment of women seafarers

The Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 goes into force on 20 August 2013. Timely payment of wages, work/rest hours and training are key components of protecting seafarers' rights under the convention, says Captain Lee Chee Seong, Managing Director of Neptune Ship Management Services. He also sees the future of seafaring as including more women; women like Second Officer Milli and Second Officer Farhane who discuss their ambitions to become a ship's captain.
