The Ministry of Transport and Communications (MoTC) recently held a workshop on the 'Navigation Risks that Threaten Maritime Security', which was attended by several maritime specialists from the Ministry of Defence, Ministry of Interior and Qatar Petroleum. Specialised trainers from the United States Fifth Fleet delivered the workshop, which marked an "unprecedented kind of collaboration with a civilian ministry, thus enhancing the efforts of maritime transport affairs at the MoTC that aim at upscaling the expertise of maritime specialists across all relevant government entities", a press statement noted.
The expert trainers delivered full explanation on navigation risks that floating objects can cause and which threaten the maritime navigation. The workshop was held from October 20 to 22 at the MoTC offices. At the end of the workshop, the ministry's Assistant Undersecretary of Maritime Transport Affairs Dr Saleh bin Fetais al-Marri handed over workshop attendance certificates to the participants and thanked the US Fifth Fleet trainers for the co-operation, which would significantly contribute to sharpening maritime specialists’ skills and expertise in the area of navigation risks.
