Dhaka, 11 February 2024 : The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has congratulated Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on her re-election as the Prime Minister of Bangladesh.

In a congratulatory letter sent to Sheikh Hasina, IMO Secretary General Arsenio Dominguez congratulated Sheikh Hasina on her reappointment as Prime Minister of Bangladesh.

He said, "I wish you every success in discharging the duties of this high office".

The IMO Secretary General said, As the UN agency responsible for the regulation of shipping, IMO is heavily engaged in supporting its member states in managing a safe, secure and environmentally sound shipping sector to protect our oceans and manage a sustainable supply chain with reliability and efficiency worldwide. Noting that Bangladesh has always played an important role in the IMO, he said, "I am sure that your astute leadership will contribute significantly to achieving our common goals".

Arsenio Domínguez noted Bangladesh's proactive steps – particularly its recent initiatives to become a party to the Hong Kong International Convention on Ship Safety and Environmentally Friendly Recycling and maritime security.

He exemplified Bangladesh's commitment to environmental stewardship. He further said that this laudable step has not only facilitated the implementation of the Convention, but also emphasized the impactful results of our technical cooperation activities.

He added that Bangladesh's actions serve as a beacon to encourage other countries to join global efforts to create a more sustainable maritime future.
