6 questions about the maritime sector and the German flag

Its internationality in all its aspects.

I have never had any other career aspirations and cannot think of anything else I would want to do.

That is a hard question, but I am convinced of the training offered in Germany. The training will always be the foundation of a successful career.

To me, the German flag represents the German saefarer. The quality of people and crew is a competitive advantage. This might not be the case in every area. By that I mean, the required skill sets vary depending on the type of ship.

See above!

The German flag cannot become a competitive disadvantage, but even within the EU this is the case. This needs to be evened out.
