Crewing tankers can offer a way out of poverty for young people, according to the CEO of Turkey's number one chemical tanker technical operator.

?Look at Singapore, due to a lack of crew, tankers have come to a standstill and it is a known fact that worldwide, personnel managers are finding qualified and able crew for tankers a real challenge,? Captain Ahmet Haznedar, head of Chemfleet Technical Management told.

Captain Haznedar said the solution could be in recruiting from poor neighbourhoods and that with the right guidance 'slumdogs' could have a better future. He said this was a mission for himself and Chemfleet.

Every year 100 ? 150 young people go through Chemfleet's Istanbul offices to seek their future in crewing tankers.

According to Haznedar, they can earn a year's salary on land in a month on a ship, and have access to good living standards aboard.

?Many are not fortunate enough to find a job on land, spending their 'best years' in dingy back street coffee houses of the slums,? he said.

Haznedar said he believed that capital never became an investment without the human factor.

He said Chemfleet currently offered free regular training to any seafarer wanting to be qualified tanker and chemical workers.

Chemfleet is also cooperating with schools, supporting students to become seamen, said Haznedar.
