YoungShip International

Young Corporation Award


The Industry


If our industry is to stay ahead in the global competition and solve tomorrow´s challenges, we are fully dependent on attracting the brightest brains, the hard working and innovative employees, and manage to compete with several other main industries on critical competence. We also need to become more visible and promote the exciting and global aspects few other industries can show for. This is an important job for the industry as a whole, yet cannot succeed unless individual companies show their investments and dedication in the next generation employees. This has become even more pressing during the unique challenges the global pandemic has created for our industry and seafarers.
