The Marina Industries Association recently conducted its first ever marina operations course in Taiwan.

The two-day course was organized in association with Vincent Kuan, a Keelung-based yacht dealer from YuYue Yacht Co. There were 34 participants from marinas, yacht dealerships, government and property developers. The syllabus included a detailed analysis of the marina industry, both locally and overseas, and there was a strong focus on the practical aspects of marina operations.

In the last year, Taiwan has placed more importance on developing its marina and boating industry and is therefore seeking to educate marina managers and government officials in the marina industry.

MIA president Andrew Chapman said in a statement that the course had been a resounding success and it demonstrated the commitment within Taiwan to strengthen its marina and wider recreational boating industries.

“Throughout the two-day course there was a high level of participation and enthusiasm,” Chapman said. “Vincent Kuan is to be congratulated for his excellent work. The success of the course provides a sound platform on which to sustain and grow the marina industry in Taiwan.”

As a result of the positive course feedback, discussions are under way to conduct further marina courses and to establish a range of linkages between the Taiwanese industry, related government agencies and the MIA.
