“Most of the world is experiencing supply chain disruption of some form right now, and globally unions are working with industry to attempt to alleviate the pressure that has mounted due to an unprecedented global health crisis. The ITF takes a global view on supply chains and we encourage Australian media and decision-makers to do likewise.
"We understand the reality that policies and disruption experienced in one part of the world will have an impact all the way down the supply chain, ultimately delaying goods reaching consumers. Simply put: the disruption, delays and shortages that we’re seeing in global supply chains are not an Australian-only phenomenon and it is definitely not an MUA-related phenomenon."
"Our collective actions must show our dedication to contribute towards the global issue of climate change. We can only achieve these goals by working together on a global scale and IMO provides the forum for shipping to do its part. The world is watching us.
"The way forward is complex, but by working together I have every confidence that we will ensure that shipping will decarbonise and make a key contribution in the fight against climate change and for cleaner oceans.
"Collaborative and considerate actions are key to making sure no one is left behind. Shipping will continue to drive world trade. The work of IMO is more relevant than ever. As a part of the United Nations family, we will continue to seek outcomes in support of sustainable development and a brighter future for our planet."
