PAKISTAN CANDIDATURE FOR THE IMO COUNCIL ELECTION 2022-2023 BIENNIUM CATEGORY 'C'
Pakistan’s Karachi Port, Port Bin Qasim and Gwadar Port - geo-strategic location and geo-economics orientation provide ample maritime opportunities, in particular to Central Asian Republics (CARs), Afghanistan, and western regions of China.
Our marine policies are designed to facilitate maritime nations and contribute towards realization of strategic objectives of the IMO’s global agenda in the realm of safety and security, regulation and addressing environmental impacts of international shipping.
Pakistan’s ‘Transshipment Policy’ endeavors to establish Karachi as a destination hub, with close geographic proximity to all major and minor ports in the South Asian and Middle Eastern regions, located in safe and open waters.
Location of these ports make them ideal for cargo consolidation and distribution for maritime trades.
