Women “an unused resource” in shipping

Women are “an unused resource” in the shipping industry, a resource which should be tapped if the industry is to expand.

That’s according to Lee Adamson, from the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

The organization says that only 2 per cent of the world’s seafarers are currently women.

It’s an issue which is being focused on during World Maritime Day, celebrated annually on 24 September.
