New Maritime Ambassador for Germany (22.04.2016)


Holger Jäde

New Maritime Ambassador for Germany

Holger Jäde, Executive Secretary of Berufsbildungsstelle Seeschifffahrt e.V., has recently been appointed Maritime Ambassador for Germany by the International Maritime Organization IMO. The Maritime Ambassador’s central task is to shift the focus of the general public to the maritime professions.

The Maritime Ambassador states that as Maritime Ambassador he will not abate his efforts to win around young people for maritime professions. In his opinion the maritime training of young people secures the future of the companies and strengthens the position on the global market. Hence why committed young people who are ready to take on responsibility, learn throughout life and think internationally, and see their future in the still very fascinating maritime professional sector are needed. Holger Jäde was suggested for the position as IMO Maritime Ambassador by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure.

You will find more information on training in the maritime sector in our section „Ausbildung“ (in German only) and on the website of the Berufsbildungsstelle Seeschifffahrt.
