Maritime NZ surveys sectors
Three sector surveys have been completed since mid last year, and Maritime NZ will next survey the Passenger and Non-Passenger sector - which has around 600-800 operators.
Feedback has been generally positive from the sectors surveyed to date - the Foreign Shipping; Ports and Harbour; and the Offshore Petroleum, Gas and Minerals sector, says Stephanie Winson, Maritime NZ’s General Manager for Legal and Policy.
“The results are recognition that Maritime NZ is working well with these sectors and its current initiatives should have further beneficial effect. Generally it seems Maritime NZ is well regarded and is considered fair and competent.”
Feedback has been similar to date across all sectors about the quality of services that Maritime NZ provides, with a further four to be surveyed on-line by early next year – including the Commercial Fishing sector, Domestic Coastal Transport Services, and Domestic Outdoor and Adventure sector.
