Happy international seafarers’ day!

Today the world celebrates the incredibly important, yet often overlooked, contribution of seafarers to our daily lives. This address by the president of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) reminds us that our modern lives without seafarers’ labour would be unthinkable – and also that there is a worldwide shortage of seafarers.

Thank you, former, current, and future seafarers!
