Now, when the next continent is raising as the new source for seamen, Africa, and the Asian seamen will go ashore to pursue their maritime careers, what education is then essential? And how to we continue to develop the maritime jobs to be even more attractive?

What background sound? I listened to it using a bluetooth loudspeaker and it was perfect.
Where do you find such amount of inspiring people?
Thank you Consuelo! I have spent several days getting the sound as it is now and I am still not quite happy with it.
However, I have since bought a new microphone and is aware of the aircon in that particular room….
