In a press statement, the Japanese embassy said that around 34,000 Filipino seafarers are onboard Japanese merchant fleet and comprise about 75% of its total personnel.
Filipino seafarers play a constructive and essential role in global trade and contribute immensely to the country’s economic growth. As the local labor union and manning agents’ association, these organizations, in close cooperation with relevant agencies, are responsible for the stable employment of quality seafarers for many years.
