Our goal is to provide as many job opportunities through this deal as possible.”Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Tina Joemat-Pettersson said the contract is the first of its kind awarded to a black-owned company; black-owned firms have traditionally shied away from technical areas of South Africa’s maritime sector.“I am confident that Sekunjalo Industrial Holdings has the requisite skills and capabilities to fulfil this contract, based on its fleet management experience and its experience in managing maintenance projects on international vessels.”[mappress]Naval Today Staff, November 25, 2011; Back to overview,Home naval-today South Africa: Sekunjalo Signs Five-Year Maritime Contract View post tag: News by topiccenter_img View post tag: Sekunjalo View post tag: Five-year View post tag: Naval View post tag: contract View post tag: Signs Share this articlelast_img read more
