Jan 26, 2012 (LBO) - Sri Lanka will sign an agreement with Italy authorities allowing Sri Lankan certified seafarers to work on Italian flagged vessels, information minister Keheliya Rambukwelle said.
A memorandum of understanding to be signed with the Italy's maritime administration will recognize certificates of competency issued by Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka's cabinet of ministers had approved the proposal put forward by President Mahinda Rajapaksa, who is also ports minister, to sign the deal.

Earlier Sri Lankan seafarers had to get an equivalent certificate issued by Italy to work in Italian flagged vessels, a statement said.
