World Maritime Day Focuses on Maritime Security

Thursday, September 30, 2004
The Secretary–General of the IMO, Mr. Efthimios Mitropoulos, issued a Message in recognition of World Maritime Day, 30 September 2004. This year the focus of the commemoration is maritime security. As we work to enhance maritime security, we must not lose sight of the fact that the foundation of such security rests with the crewmembers of the numerous ships plying the seas and carrying passengers and cargo. If they can be trusted to operate the ships, they should be trusted to go ashore in ports that benefit from the visits of those ships. (HK Law)
