Nasir Arif Mahmud, joint secretary of the shipping ministry, and Md Habibur Rahman, deputy secretary, accompanied Sekimizu during the visit.
IMO is solely responsible for safety and security of world shipping and prevention of marine pollution by ships. It is one of the 15 specialised agencies under the United Nations.
Saiful Islam, chairman of Western Marine, and Sakhawat Hossain, managing director, hoped the visit of Sekimizu will further strengthen the tie between Bangladesh and IMO.
