Panama and Philippines Signed on Mutual Agreement

Mr. Jorge Barakat Pitty, Administrator of the Panama Maritime Authority and Dr. Maximo Q. Mejia Jr., Administrator of the Maritime Industry Authority signing the agreement
Making a good realtionship - Panama being the largest fleet by flag of registration in terms of dead weight tonnage (dwt) representing about 22% of the world’s total dwt, and the Philippines being one of the biggest supplier of seafarers on merchant vessels for international trade which have an estimate of 30% of the world’s total of estimated 1.5 million seafarers, both agreed on mutual recognition of STCW certificates.

Philippines Maritime Industry Authority (MARINA) administrator, Dr. Maximo Q. Mejia Jr., and Panamana Maritime Authority (Autoridad Maritima de Panama) administrator Mr. Jorge Barakat Pitty signed the Memorandum of Agreement on mutual recognition of STCW certificates, on International Seafarers Day 25th June 2016, in Panama City, Panama.

The Memorandum of Agreement lays out the terms and conditions, duties and responsibilities of each party for the recognition of STCW certificates.

Administrator Maximo Q. Mejia Jr. referred to it as yet another landmark in relations between the world's biggest seafaring nation and the world's biggest ship registry, while Administrator Jorge Barakat lauded the great benefit derived by world commerce from the close cooperation between the two maritime nations.

The Philippine delegation consisted of Dr. Maximo Q. Mejia Jr., Administrator of the Maritime Industry Authority (MARINA), who was designated Special Envoy of the President of the Republic of the Philippines to the Inauguration of the Expanded Panama Canal, and Mr. Angelo Amonoy, First Secretary at the Embassy of the Philippines in Mexico.

Remember that seafarers being deployed on Panama registered vessel needs to have a Panama Book and Panama Certificate of Competency (depending on the rank) as well as Panama Medical Certificate. The memorandum cites the responsibility of both countries in which one is identifying the standards of the STCW or in general - proper assessment of seafarers. MARINA will implement and do their part, in this case Filipino seafarer should also cooperate.
