But we are confident that with our partnership with the Commission on Higher Education, we can address the core competencies of faculty and staff to meet the demands of developing the future global maritime leaders. We are also poised to strengthen research capabilities for future growth and development. The PMMA is also fortunate to be an attached agency of the Department of Transportation. With the support of the Department, our stakeholders are assured of a dynamic approach in leading the development of global maritime leaders through innovation, synergies and excellence.
