How do you appreciate Maritime Industry?
As a Marine transportation student, I learned how to appreciate more the world in the Maritime industry. I have gained clarity that this refers to almost everything that has to do with the sea or rivers around the world, particularly in terms of navigation, shipping, and marine engineering. This makes me realize how often our daily lives are influenced by this industry from the time we wake up until we close our eyes. This makes me critically reflect and emphasize the importance of the marine industry to our country and the rest of the globe. This shows how we keep our industries running and jobs going by allowing critical daily commodities and services to be traded.
Realizing that no country is completely self-sufficient, and all rely on marine trade to sell what they have and acquire what they require makes me realize how helpful different sectors in the marine industry are in our life. As our population continually grows, imagine how difficult our life would be if there’s no transportation for us to ship different medicines, technologies, and even foods. Knowing that the marine industry transports almost 90% of global trade; without it, the global economy would collapse. It makes me understand that this serves as the global economy’s vital part as it supports businesses, economies, and people around the world.
Knowing different benefits and works in the maritime industry makes me eager for the fast career progression. This makes me realize that working in this field equates to being part of something important. This means also pioneering the way for ethical business practices and economic environmental responsibility. This will provide us with an opportunity to work in a challenging and unique environment. As we work with people in different industries, we can acquire different opportunities, knowledge, and new skills in life.
