Congratulations on Day of Sea and River Fleet Workers

July 7, 2019

Vladimir Putin congratulated current workers and veterans of the sea and river fleet on their professional holiday, the Day of Sea and River Fleet Workers.

The message reads, in part:

“Water transport plays an important role in Russia’s socioeconomic development and in strengthening interregional and international links, and is rightly considered to be an essential, integral part of the domestic transport system. Thanks to the diligent work of sea and river fleet employees, their professionalism, competence and commitment to labour traditions set by the veterans, this sector is developing actively, increasing its competitiveness on the global market of transport services.

Today, you have new demanding tasks ahead, the most important of them being the large-scale modernisation and improvement of the coastal and port infrastructure, as well as the introduction of modern logistics and management schemes, ensuring the safety of transport and contributing to the development of water tourism.”
