Every year International Maritime Organization celebrates World Maritime Day on September 26th with a special theme. This year the theme for World Maritime Day is “Empowering Women in the Maritime Community”. This provides an opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of gender equality, in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, and to highlight the important – yet under-utilized – contribution of women within the maritime sector.
Empowering women fuels thriving economies across the world, spurs growth and development, and benefits everyone working in the global maritime community in the drive towards safe, secure, clean and sustainable shipping.
Pakistan Navy, on this important day, pledges its full support towards development of Maritime Sector in Pakistan and empowerment of women in various maritime related fields. Growth in Maritime Sector would be a step towards attaining self-sufficiency and economic development.
