The move to a new and larger office that better suits the needs
of the organisation and its seafarers signals the continued
commitment of V.Group to invest in the region. The location enjoys

Affairs' newest processing centre. Aseana City is a thriving area

new office and renewed brand and concepts, everything is indeed
working together for V.Ships."
