Staff, family, friends, and affiliates of the Maritime Safety Authority of Fiji (MSAF) joined in praise yesterday at their third quarter ministry church service.
The service was also in commemoration of World Maritime Day which was celebrated on Friday.
Present at the Holy Trinity Cathedral, Suva, service was Minister for Works, Transport and Public Utilities Captain (Navy) Timoci Natuva, directors and staff of the Department of Water and Sewerage, Department of Energy and members of the victorious Fiji Bitter Suva rugby team.
Speaking at the gathering, chief executive officer of MSAF Neale Slack acknowledged all who had made the World Maritime Day a success.
“The World Maritime Day theme for 2012 is ‘IMO: One hundred years after the Titanic’ which focuses on safety of life at sea. The theme provides an opportunity to take stock of the developments in maritime safety since that disaster, and to examine which areas of ship safety should be given priority now, and in the years to come.
“We must generate a new impetus in shipping to go beyond compliance with regulations and explore industry-wide mechanisms to ensure the safety culture is embedded throughout the entire industry,” Mr Slack said.
The church service also paid tribute to the victorious Fiji Bitter Suva rugby team who snatched the Farebrother-Sullivan trophy from Outrigger on the Lagoon Nadroga over the weekend.
