INTERNATIONAL Maritime Organization secretary-general Efthimios Mitropoulos was joined by Greece’s new Minister of Merchant Marine, Anastasios Papaligouras, to unveil the Inter-national Memorial to the Wife of the Seafarer in Greece. Mr Mitropoulos described the statue as “a long overdue” act of recognition for the women who have shouldered much of the burden of the maritime profession over the years. The ceremony was the second part of the World Maritime Day Parallel Event, following a conference on the IMO at 60 held in Athens.
