1/5/2018: Coast Guard members attend International Maritime Organization 30th Session of Assembly and 119th Session of Council

To better inform our readers about international maritime shipping issues and regulations, Maritime Commons will begin publishing regular content highlighting the work the Coast Guard performs in its role with the International Maritime Organization. Following major meetings and sessions of the IMO Assembly and/or Council or sub-committees, we will post summaries of activities and, if available, condensed transcripts of remarks or presentations by Coast Guard members. Today, we kick off this initiative with a summary of the recent 30th Session of Assembly and 119th Session of Council held in November/December 2017.
