Panama commitment

Panama Ship Registry has affirmed its commitment to provide holistic services with a focus on helping the maritime industry be in compliance with international maritime regulations.

Jorge Barakat, Minister of Maritime Affairs of the Republic of Panama, made the assurance at the Panama Maritime Authority Reception at Sea Asia 2019 in Singapore on Wednesday.

“Two years ago, we were here to celebrate Panama Ship Registry 100 years. And we meet again today to assure you that we will continue to provide service of excellence that made us the world’s largest ship registry,” Barakat said.

“Panama Ship Registry has a policy to guarantee strict compliance with all international regulations and IMO conventions with regards to the safety of navigation to prevent pollution of the maritime environment, which has allowed Panama to be part of the white list of the Paris MOU and Tokyo MOU.”
