It has been over 60 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  through cooperation.

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 2019.
