As part of the Foundation Term, on 11 December WMU students had the opportunity to attend a special lecture by Mr Youngso Kim, Deputy Director for Strategy, Planning and Partnerships in the Department of Partnerships and Projects (DPP) of the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

Mr Kim’s lecture, entitled IMO’s Partnership Efforts Towards a “Voyage Together”, focused on IMO’s activities related to the establishment of partnerships and resource mobilization, which was a new function established in IMO with his recruitment in 2017, including the development of the resource mobilization strategy for IMO's Technical Cooperation activities, work plans, coordinating capacity building development, programming and outreach activities.
