Day of the Seafarer 2021
Day of the Seafarer-2021, an annual event that falls on June 25, aims to give global recognition to the role of seafarers in the international trade and global economy. Seafarers’ role is extremely significant given almost 90 per cent of the global trade is dependent on sea. It has been annually celebrated since 2011 following the initiative of the International Maritime Organisation.
The theme for this year is the “Seafarers: at the core of shipping’s future”. Its goal is to increase the visibility of seafarers by bringing global attention to their critical role in the present and future.
