World Maritime Day, an annual global observance, falls on the last Thursday of September each year. This year, on September 28, we once again celebrate this significant day. Its primary purpose is to honor and acknowledge the invaluable contributions made by individuals involved in the maritime sector while shining a spotlight on pressing industry concerns like shipping, marine trade, and environmental issues.
This day serves as a heartfelt tribute to the dedicated seafarers, service agents, and marine officials who bravely undertake challenging tasks day in and day out. Their unwavering commitment keeps the maritime industry afloat, quite literally.
