“Oman Celebrates World Seafarers Day, Recognizing the Role of Mariners in Protecting the Marine Environment”

The Sultanate of Oman, represented by the Ministry of Transport, Communications, and Information Technology, participates with the member states of the International Maritime Organization and the maritime community in celebrating the World Seafarers Day, which was established by the organization to be on the 25th of June each year. This year’s theme is “The Role of Seafarers in Protecting the Marine Environment.”

The celebration serves as an appreciation for the efforts made by seafarers in driving global trade and the challenges they face during their maritime journeys to transport the world’s energy needs, food commodities, and all other types of goods.

The designation of this day fully acknowledges the unique contribution that seafarers from all around the world make to international maritime trade, the global economy, and society as a whole. It recognizes the challenges that seafarers face while carrying out their daily duties aboard commercial vessels and the hardships they endure by spending long periods of their professional lives at sea, away from their families and friends.

The Sultanate, represented by the Ministry of Transport, Communications, and Information Technology, pays attention to seafarers’ affairs. During the first half of this year, it conducted more than 85 oral tests and 96 written tests for seafarers applying for certification and competency. It also issued over 357 maritime documents for seafarers, in accordance with local and international regulations in this regard.

It is worth mentioning that the World Seafarers Day was adopted to be on the 25th of June each year, based on a decision adopted during the diplomatic conference to adopt amendments to the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping for Seafarers in Manila in 2010, to ensure the continued deep appreciation and gratitude for seafarers.
