Afortunadamente no pasó nada. Uno de los cuatro motores del barco de refuerzo que la adjudicataria del transporte marítimo puso este verano como refuerzo a Almería se incendió 40 minutos después de partir de Melilla.

India, according to these agencies, has lost some of its sheen as a big supplier of quality manpower to the global shipping industry, with China and the Philippines surging ahead — the former holding the top slot in the supply of officers and the latter for ratings or general-purpose staff.

Fifth largest supplier

India is the fifth largest supplier of officers after China, the Philippines, Russia and Ukraine, according to the ‘Manpower Report 2015’, published by
