Work is well in hand for the 24th Congress of the International Maritime Pilots’ Association (IMPA) to be held in Dakar, Senegal, from 22 to 27 April 2018.
A vital aspect of the biennial IMPA Congress is the opportunity for communicating and networking with over 400 pilots and international maritime experts. There will be opportunities to exchange experiences, participate in discussions and to engage with pilots regarding current issues affecting them in particular and the maritime sector in general. In turn such debates will have an impact on the strengthening of pilot safety and the maritime profession, security of port facilities, safety of navigation and the monitoring of ever-increasing vessel sizes.
