Referring to the sensitive role of the Ports and Maritime Organization in combating ship-borne pollution and the organization’s inclusion in the OPRC convention and Chemical Hazardous Substances (OPRC HMS), The general director of The Maritime Rescue and Marine environment protection stated that The Ports and Marine Organization has invested more than $ 100 million in dealing with hazardous contamination and has facilitated the process of tackling and clearing the marine environment through the purchase of strategic equipment such as skimmers.
