In-depth IMO Secretary General Lim Ki-tack

In-depth IMO Secretary General Lim Ki-tack
IMO Secretary General Lim Ki-tack talks about his goals at a TV programme and draws attention to the importance of cooperation between member states.

The International Maritime Organization is a specialized UN agency tasked with ensuring maritime safety and security and preventing pollution from ships.

Come January, a new leader will guide the organization with the vision of bridging the gap between developed and developing nations and promoting the importance of a global approach to maritime affairs instead of a regional one.

That person is Mister Lim Ki-tack, the current president of the Busan Port Authority, and we have him with us today.
Welcome, Mister Lim.

Thanks for having me.

First of all congratulations.
We understand other than being a seasoned mariner, you have acquired a great deal of practical knowledge about working at the IMO.
What goals have you set for yourself and the organization and what changes are you hoping to make?

It looks like you'll have your hands full, as the IMO is under pressure to meet the ongoing challenges of overseeing the global shipping industry.
What can the IMO do to improve relations with the industry, and what kind of role can Korea play in this respect?

Korea aside, how much influence do other countries have on the shipping business, and in particular on international organizations like the IMO?

Strong inter-Korean maritime coordination seems more than necessary these days.
From your perspective, what can the IMO do to help improve this and other aspects of inter-Korean relations?

Thank you for your time today.
We look forward to seeing you make your vision of "A Voyage Together" into a reality come 2016.
