2013 World Maritime Day Observance

IMO has, over the years, built up an enviable track record for developing and adopting new international conventions, some 53 in all, aimed at ensuring that international shipping keeps up to date with technical and technological advances in safety, that it addresses the ever increasing number of environmental challenges and concerns of Member Governments and that it facilitates the payment of compensation in appropriate situations.
Nevertheless, adoption alone is only the first step of the treaty-making process; to be effective, adoption must be followed by entry into force and, subsequently, widespread implementation of the measures put in place by the conventions.
World Maritime Day will be observed September 25, 2013 in London, United Kingdom. The World Maritime Day Parallel Event will be held in Morocco.
