The Caribbean Country of Saint Kitts and Nevis is the latest country to benefit from International Maritime Organization (IMO)’s work promoting good maritime governance practice – through a National Maritime Transport Policy (NMTP) workshop, underway in Basseterre (14-16 May).

The event brought together participants from over 30 institutions, including ministries, State and stakeholder agencies to work towards a policy to help achieve the maritime vision of Saint Kitts and Nevis.

Creating a NMPT policy will help the country’s maritime transport sector to be governed in a coordinated, efficient, sustainable, safe and environmentally-sound manner –contributing to the country’s sustainable socio-economic development and achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The workshop was organized by IMO, in cooperation with the Department of Maritime Affairs of the Ministry of Public Infrastructure, Posts, Urban Development and Transport of Saint Kitts and Nevis, with support from the World Maritime University (WMU).
