Worldwide there are approximately 3,000 merchant ports and the work of the Harbour Master can vary widely from country to country and from port to port even within the same country.
IHMA is delighted to announce that His Excellency Kitack Lim, Secretary-General of the International Maritime Organization, will address the opening day of the 11th IHMA Congress on 25 June 2018. Mr. Lim has both sea-going and port experience as well as a distinguished career at IMO which included leading the South Korean delegation and chairing one of the Sub-Committees.
Prior to his appointment as Secretary-General, Mr. Lim was President of the Busan Port Authority and he has been a great proponent of the ship-shore interface at IMO instigating the 2017 World Maritime Day theme ‘Connecting Ships, Ports and People’ which led to the development of the theme for the IHMA’s 11th biennial congress Ports – vital for safe, secure and efficient global trade.

More than 250 participants had the opportunity last month to nurture and deepen the good relationship between Hamburg and St Petersburg at the Port Evening staged by Port of Hamburg in St Petersburg.
Since 1957 Hamburg and St Petersburg have developed strong economic, cultural, social and scientific contacts. The ports of both cities have had good business contacts yet with the politically tense situation existing Hamburg and St Petersburg are still maintaining their dialogue and close business cooperation.
15 years ago Port of Hamburg Marketing (HHM) opened a representative office in St Petersburg. In honour of this anniversary Dr Torsten Sevecke, State Secretary, for the Ministry of Economics, Transport and Innovation in the Hanseatic City of Hamburg, travelled to St Petersburg at HHM’s invitation.
