VINIC was firstly founded as a joint venture company between the Vietnam Maritime University (70% charter capital) and the Nippon Steel Shipping Co., Ltd. (now as NS United Kaisha, Ltd) in September 1997, with the main business of training and improving the professions for the Vietnamese maritime officers and engineers as well as recruiting and manning seafarers for working on board Japanese and other foreign ship-owners.
