Maritime Administration to Host Virtual National Maritime Day Celebration

The Event Will Feature Remarks from Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao

On Friday, May 22, the Maritime Administration (MARAD) will commemorate the 87th National Maritime Day during a virtual program to be hosted on the agency’s YouTube channel.

The theme of this year’s program is “Resilient Sealift for a Resilient Nation,” which reflects the U.S. maritime industry’s unwavering support of the nation, especially during challenging times such as these. The event will feature remarks from several government and industry leaders including Maritime Administrator Mark H. Buzby and Secretary of Transportation Elaine L. Chao.

Declared by Congress in 1933, National Maritime Day was established to commemorate the American steamship Savannah’s maiden voyage from the U.S. to England, marking the first successful trans-Atlantic voyage with steam propulsion. This day is also used to remember the merchant mariners who served their country during WWII.
