Today was published in the Diário da República, 1st series, the long awaited Decree-Law No. 166/2019 that establishes the Maritime Activity Legal Regime (MAR). It is an important decree-law which lays down in particular the rules on maritime registration, medical fitness, training, certification, recruitment and register of vessels and other matters important for the maritime labor activity.


On the past May 3st 2019, Promarinha celebrated its 50th anniversary by bringing together its collaborators, major suppliers, national and foreign clients and public entities in an event that took place at the Clube Naval de Cascais.


It was an excellent opportunity to remember the birth, growth and development of our company having the magnificent bay of Cascais as a backdrop.


We had the opportunity to honor the employees, managers and shareholders who worked with us throughout a career and left a magnificent legacy to new employees and newly elected administration.


The current Chairman of the Board of Directors, Dr. Cardoso Martins, in addition to the natural compliments to all present, recalled the late directors and shareholders Alcindo Valadinhas and Carlos Marques dos Santos, as well as the invaluable contribution over the years of a career of more than 35 years the services of Promarinha, Mr. José Viegas and Cpt. Carlos Oliveira, the latter recently retired from active life.


He also underscored the importance of the company's role in the recent history of the Merchant Marine, giving Promarinha a decisive role in the dignification and dissemination of our Sea Man.


Among the honorees, Mr. José Viegas, recalled Promarinha's path, not always easy, from its foundation to the present day.


On March 15, 2019, a renovated board of directors was elected.

Promarinha's current Managing Director, also the company's largest shareholder, played a relevant role in the public and private sectors within the maritime industry, being accompanied in the board by Capt. José Senos and Mr. Pedro Martins, both with an extensive experience in the industry.


In this period of renovation, Promarinha wishes to publicly thank the dedication of more than 30 years of the former Directors Capt. Carlos Oliveira and Mr. Jose Manuel Santos Viegas to whom we wish good health and prosperity in the company of their families in this well-deserved stage.


In its 50th year, Promarinha will maintain the rigor and seriousness that defined its implementation and success within the industry, and gradually explore potential business opportunities in the most diverse sectors of maritime activity.


Finally we would like to thank all present and past employees, customers and suppliers who have allowed us to celebrate this beautiful anniversary, and we hope to continue to take this ship to safe harbor for many years to come.
