MARINA said it will also assist Philippine companies in obtaining financing for ship construction from government institutions “such as, but not limited to, the Development Bank of the Philippines.”

The “Integrated Ship Construction Support System Project” of MARINA and BUEA is expected to help introduce modern ship design and technology from South Korea.

According to MARINA, shipping companies have until Feb. 15 to submit applications to participate in the first phase of the project, which involves conceptual design.

MARINA and BUEA met with domestic shipping companies on Jan. 16, according to the agency.

Among the domestic shipping companies that attended were Oceanic Container Lines, Inc., Magsaysay Shipment, Inc., and 2GO Group, Inc. — Arjay L. Balinbin
