IMO’s World Maritime Day, 25 June

IMO Secretary-General Kitack Lim

The Day of the Seafarer, held on 25 June every year, draws global attention to the contribution that seafarers make to world trade.

As the world slowly moves through the pandemic, it is more important than ever not only to acknowledge the efforts that seafarers have made to keeping the supply chain open despite extremely challenging conditions, but also to ensure that the future being built is one that is fair to them. This is why IMO’s 2021 Day of the Seafarer campaign chose the theme: A Fair Future for Seafarers.

Readers are invited to see IMO Secretary-General Kitack Lim in the 2021 Day of the Seafarer video.
