World Maritime Day focuses on maritime security

The Secretary–General of the IMO, Efthimios Mitropoulos, has issued a Message in recognition of World Maritime Day on 30 September 2004. “Every year, the International Maritime Organization and its 164 Member States and 3 Associate Members celebrate World Maritime Day, when we take the opportunity to bring the objectives and achievements of the Organization to the attention of a wider audience and, at the same time, increase overall public awareness of the vital role that the shipping industry plays in all our lives.” Maritime security is the theme of this World Maritime Day.
