ON SEPTEMBER 29, Jamaica joins with other International Maritime Organization (IMO) member states and observer international organisations across the globe to celebrate World Maritime Day under the
theme, ‘New Technologies for Greener Shipping’. As a largely maritime state, Jamaica supports the green transition of the maritime sector into a sustainable future, while we work together to ensure
cohesiveness and partnership. Indeed, we will leave no one behind. This support is demonstrated by the passage of the ballast water act in 2019, which is aimed at protecting Jamaica’s marine environment. This is also in keeping with commitments under the Ballast Water Management Convention, of which Jamaica is a signatory. With over 90 per cent of Jamaica’s trade conducted by sea, the Government recognises
the importance of the Blue Economy in spurring economic growth and development.
