World Maritime Day 2014
World Maritime Day for 2014 is Thursday, 25 September. The theme for this year's World Maritime Day (IMO conventions: effective implementation) was chosen in order to provide an opportunity to shine a spotlight on those IMO treaty instruments which have not yet entered into force, as well as those for which ratification by more States and more effective implementation would yield significant benefits.
This year's World Maritime Day Parallel Event will be held in Morocco from 27 - 29 October 2014.
