On November 2, the APSN Secretariat donated masks to the crew of Huayang Maritime Center Co., Ltd. in Beijing. At the donation ceremony, Mr. Jia Dashan, SG of the APSN, said that at the beginning of 2020, the COVID-19 outbreak caused serious impact on the economy, society and people's livehood. As the basic mode of transportation of world trade, shipping has taken on more than 85% of the world's international trade material transportation, which also plays a very important role in fighting the pandemic and ensuring the normal economy. Since the outbreak, the Huayang seafarers have performed their sailing tasks with due diligence and safety. Huayang seafarers still face greater risks in the coming round of high-risk season, especially international routes involving many countries with severe outbreaks. APSN donated masks to the Huanyang seafarers to help them perform their duties safely and stay away from the virus.
Mr. Li Liqian, General Manager of Huayang, expressed his gratitude to APSN for its care and recognition of Chinese seafarers as "key workers". He also thanks APSN for its close attention for the Chinese crew manning industry, strong support to the maritime transport industry in the APEC region and orderly promotion of international trade cooperation.
