Malta ratifies Maritime Labour Convention

Date: 12/02/2013

Malta has become the 34th International Labour Office state and the 12th EU member to ratify Maritime Labour Convention.

The convention sets out decent working and living conditions for seafarers while creating conditions of fair competition for ship-owners.

In transmitting the instrument of ratification, Malta’s permanent representative in the UN, John Grech, stated that Malta, being a small archipelagic state in the Mediterranean, has traditionally regarded the shipping sector as vital for its economic development and is proud to have the largest ship register in the EU and the 7th largest register among the states parties to the Maritime Labour Convention.

As a major player in the global shipping industry constantly seeking to improve the efficiency of its shipping services in a highly competitive environment, Malta hails the forthcoming entry into force of the convention and stands confidently ready to implement its provisions in the interest of the Maltese flag, responsible operators and above all the men and women working on board Maltese vessels.
