Italy re-elected to IMO Council

Italy was re-elected today to the Category-A Council of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), which consists of “10 States with the largest interest in providing international shipping services”. Our country was elected along with Japan, China, South Korea, Greece, the UK, the United States, Panama, the Russian Federation and Norway during the General Assembly currently under way in London.

The success of Italy’s candidacy, a member since 1957, bears witness to the important role our country plays in the field of maritime navigation development, marine environmental protection, security and counter-piracy.

Election to the IMO Council is also recognition of Italy’s generous commitment to maritime personnel training and technical cooperation with developing countries, as well as of rescue and assistance activities in the Mediterranean with the intensification of migration flows from North Africa.
