IMO held national maritime transport policy training for Saint Kitts and Nevis
Saint Kitts and Nevis is the latest country to benefit from IMO’s work promoting good maritime governance practice – through a National Maritime Transport Policy (NMTP) workshop held in Basseterre on May 14-16 May.
The event brought together participants from over 30 institutions, including ministries, State and stakeholder agencies to work towards a policy to help achieve the maritime vision of Saint Kitts and Nevis. Creating a NMPT policy will help the country’s maritime transport sector to be governed in a coordinated, efficient, sustainable, safe and environmentally-sound manner –contributing to the country’s sustainable socio-economic development and achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The workshop was organized by IMO, in cooperation with the Department of Maritime Affairs of the Ministry of Public Infrastructure, Posts, Urban Development and Transport of Saint Kitts and Nevis, with support from the World Maritime University (WMU).
