PM calls for Int'l Maritime Organisation further support in maritime development

May 14, 2023

HÀ NỘI — Prime Minister Phạm Minh Chính suggested the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) continue its support to Việt Nam in maritime development, particularly in management science and personnel training, at a reception for IMO Secretary General Kitack Lim in Hà Nội on Friday. The Vietnamese Government hopes that the IMO will continue to be a pioneering international organisation in promoting maritime cooperation between Việt Nam and other member countries, Chinh noted. With a coastline of over 3,000km and many deep-water ports, Việt Nam has great potential to promote the maritime industry, he said, attributing the sector’s strong development over the past years to the IMO’s support. He suggested the IMO roll out policies in support of developing countries, including Việt Nam, in devising maritime development strategies and planning schemes, building and consolidating institutions, applying technologies, and personnel training. Lim agreed with the PM’s proposals, pledging that the IMO will work to materialise them, especially in personnel training.
