The Message of the Director General of Ports and Maritime Authority of Guilan Province on the Occasion of World Maritime Day
According to the public relations report of Ports and Maritime Authority of Guilan Province, Hossein Younesi honored the World Maritime Day by issuing a message.

The Director General of Ports and Maritime Authority of Guilan Province and the Director of the Special Economic Zone of Astara Port stated in this message:

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Transportation 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.

Seafaring and, 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.

IMO's 2022 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.

This year's 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.

I would like to congratulate the great maritime and port community of the country, especially Guilan province, on the arrival of "World Maritime Day" and wish everyone success and health from God.
