To all fellow members and seafarers:
On July 29 (Wednesday), the government announced a new policy that all crew change arrangement for passenger vessels and cargo vessels without cargo operation in Hong Kong would be suspended. Both Merchant Navy Officers’ Guild – Hong Kong and the Amalgamated Union of Seafarers, Hong Kong strongly opposed to the related decision made by the government. Towards the situation, we urged the government to review the policy and propose an appropriate testing and quarantine arrangement for seafarers promptly. Our statement to the authorities is attached for member’s review.
