World Maritime Day focuses on the importance of shipping safety, maritime security, environment and emphasises aspects of IMO’s work.
Every year the International Maritime Organization (IMO) celebrates World Maritime Day.
Each World Maritime Day has its own theme, emphasising a particular aspect of the IMO’s work. The day also focuses attention on the importance of shipping safety, maritime security and the marine environment.
World Maritime Day is held during the last week of September each year, although the exact date is up to individual governments around the world.
The world would be lost without Seaborne trade, which continues to expand, bringing significant benefits for consumers across the world through competitive freight costs.
There are more than 50,000 merchant ships trading internationally, transporting every kind of cargo. The world fleet is registered in over 150 nations and manned by more than a million seafarers of virtually every nationality.
Over the past 50 years and more, IMO has developed and adopted a comprehensive framework of global regulations covering maritime safety, environmental protection, legal matters and other areas. Under this regulatory framework, shipping has become progressively safer, more efficient and more environment-friendly.
