Seafarers make up a large share of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) and as such are of vital importance for the Philippine economy at large. These men and women often spend long consecutive time-periods at sea, away from home family. Seafarer mental health and well-being has increasingly become on the radar as a topic of concern for the maritime industry.
With a large segment of the European business community in particular active in manning and shipping, this topic specifically addresses best-practices on Seafarer Mental Health and Well-being. Organised by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in the Philippines with support of the Dutch Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines and together with the German-Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry, NordCham Philippines, and the Philippine-Norwegian Business Council, this event aims to address the what, why and how relating to this topic.
