The visit was part of ILO’s 'Train the Trainers' program, a comprehensive set of practices, tools and modules for educating managers, facilitators and other professionals who provide training.
The international representatives, including eight officers of the China Maritime Safety Administration, were greeted by Capt. Giuseppe Russo and Maurizio Campagnoli, Costa Crociere's institutional and industrial relations director.
The first part of the visit consisted of a simulation of flag state and port state control inspection. Then Capt. Luigi Giardino, chief of the Italian Flag State Branch, and Capt. Paolo Meneghetti, head of the Italian Coast Guard's training center, presented details of the Italian registry's implementation of the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 and MLC 2006 training for Italian inspectors.
