global leadership

The Minister's Adviser for Maritime Transport Affairs at the Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure, Eng. Hessa Al Malik, told "Emirates Today" on the sidelines of a press meeting held in Dubai yesterday, that the UAE has topped the world's leading centers in facing the repercussions of the Corona virus pandemic on the transport and shipping sector. This is why the International Maritime Organization commends these initiatives and calls for their dissemination.

She explained that the state dealt flexibly and effectively with the effects of the pandemic on the maritime transport sector during the past year, which supported the continuity and flow of food and medicine imports, despite the suffering of many countries from the difficulty of shipping, and the stay of more than 200 thousand sailors on their ships for long periods.

Al-Malik stated that the state launched an initiative called “Hope” to reassure the sailors stranded on board their ships, and followed that up with an initiative to provide vaccinations and medical examinations for sailors.
