Waves of Passion: a film on careers as an officer in the merchant navy
The European Union, the world's leading commercial power, conducts almost all its trade in goods by sea. Our maritime industry is prosperous. It manages the world's biggest naval fleet. Paradoxically, this industry suffers from a lack of qualified European seafarers. In 2002, there was a shortage of around 30,000 naval officers, or 30% of the demand of the some 10,000 vessels of European Union countries. So there is no lack of prospects, and for those who love the sea, a career as a naval officer offers enriching and exciting working and living opportunities.
The film "Waves of Passion" illustrates the various aspects of careers as an officer of the merchang navy as well as the possibilities of subsequent work ashore.
