On 27 May at 1000 CET, BIMCO’s new President, Sabrina Chao, will launch the second film in the series of industry films produced by BIMCO and UK-based television production company ITN.

At the webinar, hosted by BIMCO’s Secretary General and CEO, David Loosley, Sabrina Chao will talk about her priorities as President over the next two years, followed by the launch of the new film.

Like its predecessor “Ships Make the World Go”, the second film in the series, “Seafarers Deserve Support”, has been produced with the aim to raise awareness, this time focusing on our seafarers.

During the COVID-19 crisis, the ignorance of policymakers about the important job done by seafarers world-wide has been exposed. Consequently, far too many seafarers have been stuck on ships for many months, unable to go home.

To join the webinar, please sign up here. We would appreciate your support by encouraging others within your organisation and network to attend the launch.

We would also be grateful if you can mobilise your organisation and networks and encourage them to share our new film as widely as possible to raise awareness about the role of the seafarer and some of the challenges they face and help us in our call for governments to support and protect seafarers.

To share the film after the launch, you can request for a video file to embed in your organisation website by emailing Mette Kronholm Frænde at mkf@bimco.org or you can find the film on BIMCO’s LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook pages and share the post and the film.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mette Kronholm Frænde at mkf@bimco.org for more information.
