A speech by David Patraiko, Nautical Institute
David Patraiko talks about e-navigation which is intended to harmonise ship and shore in relation to the Human Element. He emphasizes the need for proper planning in order to ensure that those who will have to use it will truly understand and benefit from it.
David asks for all stakeholders to get involved and have their say in the development of the e-navigation system
