Our key objectives include improving cooperation between ports and ships and developing a closer partnership between the two sectors. And with that, raising global standards and setting norms for the safety, security and efficiency of ports and for port and coastal State authorities; and standardizing port procedures through identifying and developing best practice guidance and training materials.

Other than the rail strick, the programme went well. The UN’s International Maritime Organization (IMO) and the International Organization of Airport and Seaport Police (INTERPORTPOLICE) held a joint programme in London, UK at the IMO’s headquarters addressing “Law enforcement challenges in the maritime supply chain to improve facilitation of international maritime traffic.” Opening speeches were given by IMO’s Dr. Heike Deggim, Director of the Maritime Safety Division, and Secretary General Jay Grant of INTERPORTPOLICE.
