The IMO have announced that the theme this year for World Maritime Day is “IMO 70: Our Heritage – Better Shipping for a Better Future” commemorating the 70th anniversary
of the Convention establishing the organization. In March, a ceremony will be held at IMO Headquarters to mark the date the IMO Convention was adopted. The annual Day of the Seafarer will be on 25 June.This provides the opportunity to take stock and look back, but also to look forward, addressing current and future challenges for maritime transport to maintain a continued and strengthened contribution towards sustainable growth for all. A full programme of events to mark the occasion can be found on the IMO website, and are planned throughout the year.
