The Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN) was pleased to present its work to the Facilitation Committee (FAL) of the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
The presentation covered the impact of corruption, how it acts as a trade barrier and hinders social economic growth, and its effect the well-being the seafarers. However, MACN is also able to demonstrate significant progress in tackling corruption, including in places where this had previously been thought impossible.
MACN was pleased to have this opportunity to present the issues and raise awareness of corruption at the IMO level. We received good input and encouragement from many member states and other organizations.
We look forward to continuing this dialogue and to working with the IMO to tackle corruption in the maritime industry.
