Day of the Seafarer Message Now Online
IMO Secretary General Kitack Lim’s Day of the Seafarer 2016 video message is now online.
This year, IMO's Day of the Seafarer campaign wants to celebrate seafarers and let the world know how and why seafarers are indispensable to everyone.
The campaign theme this year is: "At Sea For All".
The theme has a clear link with the 2016 World Maritime Day theme, "Shipping: indispensable to the world," emphasising that seafarers serve at sea not just for the shipping industry or for their own career purposes but for all.
Lim said: "This year, on June 25th, the Day of the Seafarer, we are once again asking people everywhere to show their appreciation for the seafarers that quietly, mostly unnoticed, keep the wheels of the world in motion."
