The theme for World Maritime Day, 2017, connecting ships, ports, and people, recognizes the profound integration of these three key elements in marine activities. One of the fundamental requirements of all three elements is safety. The IMO has in place extensive strategies to be implemented by member nations for complete security of ships, ports, and the people associated. Making the seas safe for seafarers is one of the primary goals of sustainable development all across the world. India is an active participant in this endeavor and has implemented several measures to assiduously protect its coasts and oceanic boundaries. A discussion with Capt. L. K. Panda, former Nautical Advisor to the Government of India, gives us an insight into the same. #worldmaritimeday #safeseassafeshores #susta...
At forbinde skibe, havne og mennesker er temaet for dette års IMO World Maritime Day! Uden shipping ville det ikke være muligt at importere og eksportere varer i det omfang, vi har brug for i den moderne verden. F.eks. rejser der hvert år 2 millioner lastbiler med os. Og spørger du os, kan alt forbindes digitalt.

WORLD MARITIME DAY 28 SEP 2017 WITH THEME OF CONNECTING SHIP, PORT& PEOPLE Roughly 90% of world trade is carried by the international shipping industry. There are over 50,000 merchant ships trading internationally, transporting every kind of cargo. The world fleet is registered in over 150 nations, and manned by over a million seafarers of virtually every nationality. Shipping is the safest and most environmentally benign form of commercial transport. Perhaps uniquely among industries involving physical risk, commitment to safety has long pervaded virtually all deep sea shipping operations. Shipping was among the very first industries to adopt widely implemented international safety standards. Because of its inherently international nature, the safety of shipping is regulated by various Un...
