The purpose of the event was to initiate Solomon Islands Maritime Authority (SIMA)’s Community Engagement programme by integrating two (2) events: a talk about Women in Maritime Leadership and the official signing ceremony of the MOU between the Ministry of Health and Medical Services (MHMS) & SIMA.
The conjunction of the two was to have one event with the theme “together breaking barriers” to provide an awareness session for women engaged in the maritime sector as well as to witness the MOU signing ceremony.
The objectives of the event were:
Dates: Wednesday 19 October 2022.
Location: Heritage Park Hotel, Honiara.
Arrangements: face-to-face meeting.
