Seminar on Hydrography Day held

BSS

Bangladesh Navy (BN) today organized a seminar marking the ‘Word Hydrography Day’ with the aim to highlight the importance of hydrography at the command of Commander Chattogram Naval Area, reports BSS. This year the theme of the day is: “Bathymetry-the foundation for sustainable seas, oceans and waterways,” said a press release of ISPR in Dhaka. Assistant Chief of Naval Staff (Operations) and Chairman of National Hydrographic Committee Rear Admiral Mohammad Makbul Hossain addressed the seminar as the chief guest.

Representatives from different ministries and maritime stakeholders and members of the National Hydrographic Committee along with senior naval officers were present in the seminar.

The theme of the seminar provides the opportunity to raise awareness that a better understanding of the depth and the shape of the seabed is key to the success of all human activities in, on or under the sea – including safety of navigation, protection of the marine environment, development of the blue economy and the sustainable use and governance of the marine domain.

BN has developed the capability to produce International Standard Nautical Charts. The charts are being used for ocean navigation by the mariners worldwide.

BN has a memorandum of understanding with United Kingdom Hydrographic Office to print BN charts and market them to the mariners worldwide.
