IMO Secretary-General Mr. Efthimios E. Mitropoulos expressed his hope that, as with the Seafarers' Memorial, the portraits will provide a source of inspiration to staff, delegates and visitors alike, serving as a reminder of the contribution these individuals have made to the success of IMO and as a tribute to their tireless efforts to promote safety, security and environmental protection.

"The course of IMO's history can be traced through their respective tenures of office and the achievements of each of them, in their time, reflect the achievements of the Organization in its perennial quest to attain its objectives. Each, in his own way, has put his strong mark on the evolution of IMO," he said.
