India’s maritime achievements recognised with highest tally at IMO re-election in UK

India’s maritime achievements recognised with highest tally at IMO re-election in UK

India has been re-elected to the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) Council for 2024-25 with the highest tally at elections held at its Assembly in London last week.

The re-election falls under Category B of 10 states with "the largest interest in international seaborne trade", alongside Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Indian High Commissioner to the UK Vikram Doraiswami said: “We are delighted and humbled by the support of the international community at the International Maritime Organisation for India to continue to serve the global maritime domain. The IMO is the premier body that oversees the maritime sector that in turn underpins international trade, transport and all maritime activities.

“Our re-election in London, with the highest tally in the election, to the IMO Council in Category B, sustained a proud and unbroken record of India's continuous service at IMO. It fully reflected appreciation of the high priority our government has attached, especially in recent years, to the rapid expansion and development of our domestic shipping sector and to enhancing India's diverse contributions to global maritime operations.”

The IMO is the premier body that oversees the maritime sector, which in turn underpins international trade, transport and all maritime activities. The Council is the executive organ of IMO and is responsible, under the Assembly, for supervising the work of the organisation. Between sessions of the Assembly, the Council performs the functions of the Assembly, except that of making recommendations to governments on maritime safety and pollution prevention.
