Limassol honours IMOEos Mitropoulos at Maritime Cyprus.

The shipping industry has been one of the main contributors to the development of Cyprus and especially the city of Limassol, its mayor Andreas Christou said during a special ceremony to honour the Secretary General of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) Efthimios Mitropoulos.

The ceremony took place Sunday during official opening celebration of this year's Maritime Cyprus Conference. "We are very proud to claim that Limassol is one of the biggest maritime centers in the world", Christou stressed.

The mayor praised the Secretary General of the IMO for his efforts to develop a sustainable international shipping industry, to ensure a clean and healthy marine environment, to extend safety, security, pollution prevention and control.

Mitropoulos' efforts had a positive effect on Limassol, Christou said and went on to add that the protection of the marine environment and the minimisation of the environment pollution caused by sea transportation were also vital for its sustainable development.
