In the Name of God, the
Compassionate, the Merciful
is one of the basic sectors of the economy in the world, and the maritime and
shipping industry has been the most economical and safest sector in
transportation as well as commercial exchanges, which plays an important role
in the sustainable development and economic and commercial progress of countries.
as a result, seafarers play a key role in international markets and world
trade, and more than 80% of the world's commercial exchanges are carried out by
sea. For this reason, every year, the International Maritime Organization (IMO)
honors the efforts of seafarers and promotes the culture of seafaring with a new slogan, and a day is named and honored as
World Maritime Day.
theme is "New Technology for Greener Shipping", which supports the
transition of the shipping sector to a greener, sustainable future and targets
innovation, maritime research and development, and the deployment of new
technologies. The Ports and Maritime Organization, as per the annual routine,
while celebrating this great day, tries to use the country's maritime
capacities to always take long and effective steps to support the domestic
maritime industry and seafarers of the country.
slogan provides an opportunity to focus on the importance of the sustainable
maritime sector and the need for its better and greener reconstruction in the
post-Covid-19 era, therefore, taking the help of modern technologies of this
industry will lead to a strong and meaningful maritime sector in the global
economy and it will enable increased connections and alliances between
sustainable shipping and the global economy.
