World Maritime Day is being observed on Thursday (September 26). The theme of this year is: “Empowering Women in the Maritime Community“.
This year’s theme provides an opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of gender equality, in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and to highlight the important – yet under-utilized – contribution of women within the maritime sector.
In his message on the occasion, Naval Chief Admiral Zafar Mahmood Abbasi reaffirmed Pakistan Navy’s commitment for the development of maritime sector and empowerment of women in different maritime sectors.
He pointed out that Pakistan is blessed with over 1000 kilometer of coastline and around 290,000 square kilometer sea area. He was confident that the full operationalization of China Pakistan Economic Corridor project will immensely increase maritime activities in Pakistan.
