Difficulty in Attracting New Blood Remains a Big Challenge of the Industry

The industry, in particular the local vessel sector, is still struggling with the ageing problem and the lack of new blood. Concerted efforts among the employers, training institutes and the Government are required to enhance the youngsters’ knowledge about the industry. A more flexible examination arrangement of the Local Certificates of Competency, such as relaxing the pre-conditions for sitting the examinations, may also enhance the appeal of the local vessel sector.
