The Bahamas is re-elected to the IMO Council

1st December 2017

In a nerve-wracking vote to Category C of the IMO Council late on Friday afternoon, December 1 2017, the Bahamas was re-elected to the IMO Council for the coming two-year term.

It was greatly relieved team, lead by the Bahamas Minister of Transport and Local Government, the Hon Frankie Alfred Campbell, and accompanied by senior officials from the Bahamas High Commission and the Bahamas Maritime Authority, that saw the re-election to the IMO Council after a very drawn out election process having gone on almost all of Friday at the IMO Headquarters in London.

The Bahamas Shipowners Association would like to extend its greatest thank you to the Bahamas team, and all involved from the Bahamas Government, for their effortless work on seeing this process through, ensuring the re-election to the IMO Council.
