The Maritime Industry Authority (Marina)
Regional Office VII (MRO7) is set to open an extension office in Panglao town, Marina said on Wednesday.
The good news came after Panglao Mayor Edgardo Arcay has granted the request of MRO 7, headed by Regional Director Engr. Emmanuel Carpio, to establish an extension office in the said town.
The said extension office will be situated in the old municipality building of Panglao, in front of St. Augustine Parish.
The location is considered strategic since most operations are concentrated in Panglao.
Further, the extension office will help local seafarers to process their certificates and licenses without having the need to travel to Cebu or other Marina offices.
Carpio expressed his gratitude to Arcay for assisting Marina Cebu in its objective to bring the services of the agency closer to the people.
Marina is an agency of the Philippine government under the Department of Transportation responsible for integrating the development, promotion and regulation of the maritime industry in the Philippines.
