"I commend you on the project objective to raise the quality of shipping standards globally," she wrote. "A focus that is very much in accordance with the IMO's own objectives of safe, secure and efficient shipping on cleaner oceans."
 
Pledging continued support she added: "As a stakeholder to the project we will continue to participate wherever possible in support of the overall aim of improved standards in shipping."

I have never participated in a project where there has been better team work, support and cooperation between shipping companies and other industry stakeholders in every aspect of the project. We are very honoured and grateful to have the IMO's support.
