Under the patronage and the attendance of the UAE Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure (MOEI), Tristar Group officially announced the agenda of its 4th annual ‘Safety at Sea’ conference with focus on improving the lives of seafarers at sea. The 4th edition will be held in Dubai on November 22, 2022 and will be attended by UAE government officials, prominent leaders of the regional maritime industry, and representatives from numerous maritime organizations, in addition to seafarers.
Senior officials H.E Eng. Hessa AlMalek, Advisor to the Minister for Maritime Transport Affairs at MOEI and Capt. Abduallah AlHayyas, Director of Maritime Transport Affairs at MOEI will be among the industry panellists who will deliberate proactive measures to improve working conditions and support for seafarers.
Experts from the shipping industry, shipbuilders, classification societies, academia, and law firms have also been lined up to further expound on this year’s theme on ‘Reinforcing the Well-being of Seafarers’. Kitack Lim, International Maritime Organization (IMO) Secretary General, will also deliver the opening remarks addressed to seafarers.
H.E Kitack Lim, Secretary General, IMO said: “A safe, secure and efficient international shipping industry is indispensable to the modern world and is in the interests of global trade and the economy. As a former seafarer myself, the safety and security of seafarers is very close to my heart. The IMO Secretariat will continue to work tirelessly to deal with challenges related to maritime safety by means of a multi-pronged approach, including policy development, direct interventions by our Seafarer Crisis Action Team SCAT and interagency and industry partnerships and we will continue to work with governments, industry and other international organisations to enhance maritime safety and security. Thus, I look forward to participating in the next event and I’m confident it will contribute greatly to safety at sea.”
