World Maritime Day 2018

Thursday 27 September 2018
Today, September 27, is World Maritime Day and this year’s theme is IMO 70: Our Heritage—Better Shipping for a Better Future.
IMO World Maritime Day 2018

It has been 70 years since the IMO Convention was first adopted and Australia has been a member state since the beginning. As Australia’s representative at the IMO AMSA is proud to contribute to the IMO’s mission—to promote safe, secure, environmentally sound, efficient and sustainable shipping.

Australia is reliant on shipping for our economic prosperity, and as a country, with some of the most sensitive marine environments on the planet, we must ensure that it remains safe and reliable into the future.

AMSA wishes everyone in the maritime industry a happy World Maritime Day 2018.
