World Maritime Day, “Shipping is indispensable to the World”

We are celebrating the #WorldMaritimeday

“Shipping is indispensable to the world.” That is the message being shared around the world today, 29 September, as IMO and the global maritime community celebrates the annual World Maritime Day.

World Maritime Day is an official United Nations day. Every year, it provides an opportunity to focus attention on the importance of shipping and other maritime activities and to emphasize a particular aspect of IMO’s work.

The focus and theme for 2016 is “Shipping: indispensable to the world” – chosen to focus on the critical link between shipping and the everyday lives of people all over the planet, and to raise awareness of the role of IMO as the global regulatory body for international shipping.

Happy World Maritime day to you!
