THE Maritime Industry Authority (MARINA) will come up with a database for the domestic shipping industry in June, following the conduct of a one-time registration for vessels serving the domestic trade.

MARINA administrator Oscar M. Sevilla said the registration will enable the agency to establish a Philippine Ship Registry that will help maximize economic opportunities that may be obtained from the maritime industry. Sevilla said the existing ship registry is outdated and incomplete, making it difficult for the maritime authority to properly monitor the local water transport sector.
