He concluded that investing in hiring the right people with the right character and providing quality training and education, will lead to quality performance of ships, reduced risks and incidence of human errors, better crisis management, satisfied customers and principals, and cost-efficiency in the long term. Javier also highlighted that if a company provides a clear career development plan and family assistance program, seafarers are more likely to stay loyal, therefore talent retention.

The event, organized by the Active Communications International, provided the opportunity for valuable interactions among ship owners, ship managers, shipping companies, and key industry associations.​
