Message from Koji Sekimizu

Secretary-General, International Maritime Organization


IMO profile 2Shipping is vitally important to the global community, playing a key role in sustainable development. The world depends on a safe, secure and efficient shipping industry; and, in turn, the shipping industry is dependent on an adequate supply of seafarers to operate the ships that carry the essential cargoes we all rely on.

But this supply of manpower is by no means guaranteed. Shipping is a highly technical industry, demanding considerable skill, knowledge and expertise from those who work in it. And it is impossible to learn all that on the job.

As a truly international industry, shipping needs a global network of specialist education and training establishments to ensure a continuing stream of high-calibre recruits.
