Pakistan Merchant Shipping - Maritime Business and Employment.

Would you send your son to serve in merchant navy?

A new poll has been created for the PakistaniMariner group - Enter your vote today!

The days of merchant navy have changed and the profession has undergone extensive set-back so far as the Pakistani mariners are concerned, especially after 9/11 Pakistani seafarers are facing problems that had never risen before - from job un-availability to humiliating treatment on the ports by local authorities.

It, however, remains a well paid profession and promises financial freedom for the ones who adopt it successfully.

The question for this poll is:

In this back-ground and other issues concerning Pakistani Seamen in national and international shipping companies, would you send your son to serve in merchant navy?

  • Yes
  • No
  • Only if he will not be able to get suitable employment / education elsewhere.
