At the 28th session of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) Assembly, which took place in London from November 25 to December 4 2013, Cyprus was re-elected to the IMO Council, the body responsible for supervising and coordinating the organisation's work.
Cyprus submitted its candidacy to be re-elected as a member of the council in Category (c), comprising 20 elected member states of the IMO. Cyprus was first elected to the council in this category in 1987 and has been re-elected ever since, ranking among the first four candidates in the number of votes received. In the 2013 election it was again among the top four candidates.
Membership of the council is particularly beneficial, as it allows Cyprus to participate in the decision-making process affecting shipping and underlines the country's credentials as an international maritime power.
