On January 22, Capt. Xu Lirong, Chairman COSCO SHIPPING, boarded M.V. CSCL Asia, which was berthing at Shanghai Waigaoqiao Terminal, and extended solicitude to the crew.
Capt. Xu wished the crew and their family good health and happiness. He introduced the reform, development, operations and profit-making efforts made by COSCO SHIPPING in 2019, saying the progress could not be achieved without the dedication of seafarers and the support of their family. Noting that seafarers are the core strategic resources of the corporation, Capt. Xu said seafarers’ interests will be further guaranteed as the corporation grows bigger and stronger through continuous reforms. With the implementation of tax cut policy for seafarers and the advancement of ship and seafarer management system, seafarers’ sense of happiness is bound to be enhanced. The corporation will show greater care and support for seafarers and effectively guarantee their practical interests. Capt. Xu added that the corporation will increase exchanges between onshore and offshore posts and open up the channel for two-way talent flow.
Executives from the Executive Division, COSCO SHIPPING Lines and COSCO SHIPPING Seafarer also attended the activity.
