India wins election to be in IMO Council for next 2 years

India on Friday got the second highest number of votes enabling it to re-enter the Council of the International Maritime Organisation under Category-B which are states with the largest interest in international seaborne trade. Germany scored a maximum of 146 votes.

The IMO General Assembly is held every two years and the elections of IMO council members are also held during the event.

New Delhi managed to secure 144 votes of member countries.

"India enters the IMO Council under category B having won 144 votes, the second highest in the category". Indian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom YK Sinha represented the country at the assembly.


India has been among the 10 members of the council since 1959 who was elected unanimously.

Shipping minister Nitin Gadkari recently arrived in London to address IMO's annual session where he raised support for the nation during elections. The Council performs all the functions of the Assembly, except that of making recommendations to Governments on maritime safety and pollution prevention.

Al Nuaimi pointed out that winning membership into the IMO's council was an addition to the UAE's record of cultural achievements and paves way for a new stage of global leadership by enhancing the country's contribution to the development of international laws and regulations that will promote international trade, transport and international shipping. Till now Bangladesh and Argentina were members in this category.

The win was the triumphant result of an election that included nominees from 11 leading countries in the worldwide marine trade sector such as Germany, Sweden, Netherlands, Brazil, Argentina, France and Australia.
