MONROVIA, June 10 (LINA) -The Regional Coordinator of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) for West and Central Africa, Dallas Laryea has indicated that maritime transport is essential to the world’s economy because it is the most effective way to move goods, raw materials, as well as classified ‘dangerous goods’ worldwide.

Laryea made the remarks Monday at the Monrovia City Hall at the start of a four-day National seminar on the implementation of the International Maritime Dangerous goods Code (IMDG) and the International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes Code (IMSBC) organized by the Liberia Maritime Authority in collaboration with the IMO.

According to Laryea, dangerous goods or hazardous materials must be transported or shipped in a safe manner in line with the IMO guidelines and codes that are intended to prevent marine pollution and protect ships’ crew.

He indicated that the intended usage of the Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) code is not limited to ships’ crews but also to personnel of industries and services connected to the shipping of ‘dangerous and hazardous goods.

“The usage of these codes one way or the other applies to the Agriculture, mining, textiles and food industries,” Laryea stated.

He pointed out that the main aim of this training course in Liberia is therefore to provide awareness training to shore-side personnel involved in the management of dangerous goods in packaged form and solid bulk cargoes in various aspects.
