Government offers training in Far East

The Manx government has launched a training course for ship superintendants in China.

The five-day programme involves the China LNG Shipping International Company based in Shenzen Province.

It's a joint initiative between the Island's Ship Registry and the International Business School, along with local companies Dohle, Bernhard Schulte and EMCS International.

If all goes well, it could also be offered in Japan and Nigeria.
