London, UK – During the occasion of the 30th Assembly of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), The Bahamas secured re-election to the IMO Council for the 2018-2019 biennium.

IMO is The United Nation’s specialized agency for the safety and security of shipping and the prevention of marine pollution by ships. The IMO Council is the executive organ of IMO and is responsible, under the Assembly, for supervising the work of the Organization.

The Bahamas’ re-election represents a significant achievement not only for the nation but regionally for the Caribbean and globally for small island developing states for whom The Bahamas will strive to ensure equal representation during the international meetings. Council representation enables The Bahamas to be at the forefront of decision making on issues that will impact all industry stakeholders including our shipowners. The importance of this role, as a regulator, is immeasurable.

The process to garner the support and confidence of the voting IMO member states was a Bahamian inter- agency collaborative effort undertaken by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Transport & Local Government and Bahamas Maritime Authority.
