The event attracted key stakeholders and experts from the shipping industry to discuss various aspects of the IMO, such as its structure, conventions, and interventions. Participants explored ways to promote sustainable maritime practices and enhance India’s involvement with key IMO committees.

During the workshop, discussions focused on technical cooperation, capacity building, and the importance of collaboration in addressing emerging challenges in the maritime sector. The Director-General of Shipping emphasized the need for a multi-dimensional approach involving all stakeholders and technical experts.

With a vast coastline, numerous ports, and a large number of vessels, India is well positioned to contribute to the IMO’s objectives. The workshop underscored the government’s commitment to fostering dialogue, sharing insights, and building partnerships to create a sustainable and resilient maritime future.
