World Maritime Day observed with theme Shipping: Indispensable to the World
29 September 2016 Current Affairs: World Maritime Day was observed across the world on 29 September 2016. Theme for the day is shipping: indispensable to the world.

The theme was chosen to focus on the critical link between shipping and global society and to raise awareness of the relevance of the role of International Maritime Organization (IMO) as the global regulatory body for international shipping. The importance of shipping to support and sustain today's global society gives IMO's work a significance that reaches far beyond the industry itself.

Besides, to mark the 2016 World Maritime Day, a parallel event will be held in Istanbul, Turkey, from 4 to 6 November 2016.
