Kenya’s re-election to the IMO Council
desires to continue serving the international maritime community in the Council
under Category ‘C’ and seeks the support of Member States at the elections to
be held during the 31st Regular Session of the IMO General Assembly
in London between 25th November and 5th December 2019. The
Country is committed towards support of IMO’s initiatives. Kenya’s re-election
to the IMO Council will therefore be of benefit not only for the region, but
also for the wider international maritime community.
Kenya also re-affirms her focus on strengthening her
relationship with the IMO and
its Member States and firmly believes that her re-election to the Council under
Category ‘C’ will serve the interests of the Eastern and
Central Africa sub-region, Horn of Africa and West Indian Ocean and the
international maritime community in general.
thanks all Member States which voted for her in 2017. The Republic of Kenya is
grateful to have served in the Council in the past Biennium and for having been
given the opportunity to actively participate in a wide range of IMO issues.
reaffirms her commitment to remain focused in ensuring that the Region and the
international maritime community’s interests continue to be upheld.
