Finland could possibly invest in South Africa’s maritime sector, International Relations Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane said. “We are looking at inviting them to come into the maritime sector, particularly ship building, which is run by the private sector,” she said in an interview in Finland. “So in the sector that we are opening up for South Africa, we will be encouraging ship building, ship maintenance [and] boat manufacturing…”
Finland and South Africa enjoy good relations, and Mashabane was in the country this weekend to strengthen ties between the two nations and further cement the relationship. Finland was described as a reliable and dependable partner. “The good thing about Finnish investors is that when they come, they stay and they don’t come small,” she said. “They are very rich in architecture, designs and in technology.” Finland’s Foreign Affairs Minister Erkki Tuomioja said the opportunity sounded interesting. He said Finland had a wide range of maritime experts that could be of great use to South Africa. Source: SAPA
On Wednesday, 5 June, the International Sailors Society (ISS) hosted 11 change makers in the shipping and maritime industry at one of their friendship breakfasts.
These breakfasts, which form part of the fundraising programme are also valuable forums for networking with the industry thereby keeping the community informed of the vital work done by the ISS.
Landrover Durban was the generous sponsor of a delicious breakfast. The information session, including the showing of a DVD on ISS lasted about 10 minutes and then questions and answers followed.
According to Rev. Johan (Boet) van Schalkwyk , CEO of ISSA a lot of productive interaction took place.
