Day of the Seafarer
June 25 was the annual Day of the Seafarer, which was established in a resolution adopted by the 2010 Diplomatic Conference in Manila to adopt the revised STCW Convention.
The day recognizes the unique contribution made by seafarers from all over the world to international seaborne trade, the world economy and civil society.
This year, the theme was “Seafarers Matter”.
For 2017, the idea was for ports and seafarer centers to share and showcase best practices in seafarer support and welfare.
