The IMSO Director General, Captain Moin Ahmed, is pleased to announce that the Republic of Guinea has acceded to the IMSO Convention on the 13 March 2019, reaching a total membership of the Organization to 105 Member States.

In this regard an Instrument of Accession signed by His Excellency Mr. Moustapha Mamy Diaby, Minister of Posts, Telecommunications and Digital Economy of the Republic of Guinea, was deposited to the Secretary-General of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Mr. Kitack Lim, the depositary of the IMSO Convention, thereby rendering the Republic of Guinea the newest Member State of IMSO.

The Director General continues with an active outreach program in order to increase the overall membership of IMSO, encouraging various non-member states to become involved in increasing maritime safety. This in turn facilitates a greater spread of efficient maritime communications and general improvement to protecting lives at sea internationally.
