Flag of convenience service opens 27th branch in the Philippines

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, Oct. 7, 2015) – The Marshall Islands ship registering business has expanded to open a 27th branch in the Philippines.

The Marshalls registry is one of the main providers of a flag of convenience.

The International Registries, which provides administrative and technical support to the Marshalls, says opening an office in Manila is a natural fit for the registry.

It says this is because more than 35 percent of seafarers serving on RMI-flagged vessels hail from the Philippines.

The new office is staffed by four personnel and will be headed by Leo Bolivar.

The opening of the new office is viewed as a strategic move in facilitating documentation needs of operators in the area.
