The South African International Maritime Institute (SAIMI) is facilitating the development of the skills and knowledge base required to ensure the success of the “Blue Economy” maritime economic development initiatives such as Operation Phakisa and the African Union’s African Integrated Maritime Strategy.

SAIMI serves South Africa and the African continent by promoting skills development, education, training and research that supports growth of the blue economy.

SAIMI’s purpose, structure and programmes are based on extensive stakeholder consultation together with the findings of a detailed feasibility study and business plan commissioned by the South African Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA) in collaboration with the Department of Transport (DoT) and Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET).
