Seafarers Take Center-Stage at LISW

London International Shipping Week 2021 turned out to be my first international business trip after 18 months and based on the friendly and collegial atmosphere throughout the event, it was obvious that I wasn’t the only one who had missed the benefits of finally being able to conduct business face to face again. The VIKAND team and many of our industry partners had the pleasure of visiting Inmarsat’s London office as they addressed how to meet the welfare needs of seafarers in a digital age and the role of technology in a disrupted world.

The Headline Conference at IMO focusing on driving growth in a disrupted world was another highlight, as IMO’s Secretary General Kitack Lim addressed the seafarers as, “The silent heroes and collateral victims of the COVID-19 pandemic.” He also spoke to seafarers’ professionalism, dedication and personal sacrifice throughout the pandemic and the fact that “we must continue to support them”.

Our team at VIKAND agree passionately on the continued focus of supporting seafarers and the broader maritime community throughout the pandemic. Our dedication is to provide necessary, timely and innovative healthcare solutions today, and tomorrow.
