IMO Declares 2010 Year Of The Seafarer

IMO Secretary General Efthimious Mitropoulos declared 2010 as the Year of the Seafarer. At Amver we like to think of every years as a year of seafarers and we were excited to see the IMO shine a light on the brave men and women who make the maritime sector work.

We know there are plenty of people behind the shipping scene but this is recognition that is long overdue. Despite increased naval patrols piracy is on the rise, the seas continue to claim ships, and seafarers face the same uncertain economy that has hit us all.

To the men and women who go down to the sea, thank you from Amver!
