As IMO informed, the training courses started on 19 January until 23 January and are taking place in the Djibouti Regional Training Centre.

While enhancing the Federal Government of Somalia and the regional authorities, IMO will further introduce the core functions of a maritime administration.


For the records, participants who attend the induction training, will focus on the rights and obligations of relevant international maritime conventions (UNCLOS, SOLAS, MARPOL, STCW, MLC) and legal frameworks, which will be necessary in setting the newly-developed Somali Maritime Code into force.

The relaunch of country's maritime sector plays a major role in Somalia's recovery from a long conflict and will be a vital tool in finding practical methods to implement the United Nations' 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Concluding, several months ago IMO and the United Nations Assistance Mission in Somalia (UNSOM) organized a workshop in Mogadishu, Somalia to finalize the much-awaited Somalia Shipping Code.
