The IMO secretary-general will be represented by David Edwards, director of IMO's Technical Co-operation Division, and also attending the event will be IMO Council chairman Johan Franson; Igor Ponomarev, chairman of the Maritime Safety Committee; and Ben Owusu-Mensah, chairman of the Technical Co-operation Committee.
