The 2050 Africa Integrated Maritime (AIM) Strategy was launched by the African Union in 2014 with a vision to develop an environmentally sustainable and integrated blue economy across the continent of Africa.

Several African countries, notably West African countries such as Nigeria, have taken steps to increase seafarer training and grow their local maritime skills resources. Marine Crew Services has played a key role in assisting many of these countries – such as Nigeria and West Africa – by providing training management services.
