"To incorporate constructive comments and recommendations on the draft regulations that will benefit not only the maritime sector but the nation as a whole and to ensure stakeholder participation in the drafting of the marine regulations that will bring about a sense of ownership by maritime stakeholders of the maritime legislations."
