  MODEL INTERNATIONAL MARITIME ORGANISATION Jamaica  Submissions on behalf of Jamaica Before addressing the matter at hand, it must be noted that the opportunity to voice the opinion of Jamaica and the Caribbean region at large is greatly appreciated. I would like to firstly make mention of the plethora of concerns, two main ones come to mind; that of passenger vessels and developing countries. As it relates to passenger vessels, though from a statistical point of view the Maritime Autonomous Surface Ship initiative would eliminate what is calculated to be the number one cause of error at sea which is the human factor. Hitherto, technological advancements of this kind were unfathomable. Understandably, such concepts are welcomed. However, it must be noted that it is this very human factor that allows for some high sea voyages to be what they are today. Therefore, the MASS’s validity may go so far and no further. Specifically for  passenger vessels. Also, speaking from an economic point of view, cruise shipping is one of the most attractive at sea ventures in terms of revenue and visitation for the Caribbean, so it is of this point why the belief is that if MASS were to be implemented and become effective clear articles, subsections or clauses should be put in place making mention of how passenger vessels would be treated. Bearing the economic perspective in mind leads me to my second concern. That of developing Countries. If there were to be the introduction of MASS it would distinctly further put some of the developing countries behind that of most first world countries due to the lack of technology namely; infrastructure and superstructure to accommodate these new vessels. This concludes my suggestions and concerns.
