Oman celebrates World Maritime Day


Muscat: The Sultanate of Oman, represented by the Ministry of Transport, Communications and Information Technology, participates today in the International Maritime Organization’s celebration of World Maritime Day, which falls on the 28th September every year.

The Ministry of Transport, Communications and Information Technology illuminated the Ministry’s building in blue. A symbolic sign of the seas and oceans, and an emphasis on the importance of maritime transport through which more than 80 percent of global trade passes.

The Ministry of Transport, Communications and Information Technology appreciated the efforts of the maritime community in the Sultanate of Oman and the countries of the world for their continued interest in developing this sector and their commitment to its treaties.

This year’s celebration coincides with the fiftieth anniversary of a historic treaty aimed at preventing pollution resulting from ships, the MARPOL Convention, which was signed on the 28th September 1973.
