The Shipping Ministry is in discussion with the International Maritime Organisation to set up a regional branch of World Maritime University (WMU) in India, according to Union Shipping Minister G K Vasan.
Speaking during the University Day celebrations of the Indian Maritime University (IMU), Vasan said he discussed the possibility of establishing the regional branch of WMU when secretary general of International Maritime Organisation Koji Sekimizu called on him last month.
“During the discussion we also took up with him the need for closer cooperation between Indian Maritime University and WMU at Malmo, Sweden and International Maritime Legal Institute, Malta. We would be following up all these initiatives to bring world class maritime education to our country,” the minister said.
