CSECDay1-djmThe Caribbean Shipping Association's (CSA) 16th annual Caribbean Shipping Executives Conference (CSEC) began yesterday in Willemstad, CuraÁao, with remarks from the association's president, David Jean Marie.

Here are some excerpts from his address.

"Technology has created a major disruption to our industry, the emergence of the fourth Industrial Revolution has blurred the lines between the physical, the digital and the biological worlds. This plays out in even how we conduct security, in that we are shifting from physical presence to managing intangible global supply chains. This has resulted in two major changes facing our industry. One is a mindset gap and the other is a skill-set gap. As a result, the way we train people has to change to meet these new global requirements. We are still training people for jobs which no longer exist or are fast disappearing so, as a result, we end up with jobs without people and people without jobs. That means that the learning curve in the industry is very steep, resulting in health and safety hazards and costly mistakes, and lack of adherence to international standards and protocols. Additionally, the old mindset based on 'entitlement' and 'rights', rather than 'responsibilities', needs to evolve. Our training programmes are shifting to meet these needs.
