The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia held a lunch for the delegates participating in the 49th International Mobile Satellite Organization (IMSO) Advisory Committee on the 16th of November 2023. The lunch was held at the International Maritime Organization building in London.

IMSO is responsible for the oversight of certain public satellite safety and security communication services provided by mobile satellite communication systems. IMSO also serves as the Coordinator for the Long Range Identification and Tracking of Ships (LRIT), appointed by the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) party States at IMO to ensure the worldwide operation of the system. The IMSO Advisory Committee is in charge of working through issues facing the IMSO and provide expert support and advice.

Saudi Arabia works with IMSO to provide LRIT support to Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and Small Island Developing States (SIDS) so they are not left behind. Collaboration is a key issue for the Kingdom and one of its main focuses within the IMO as a whole.
