Kenya’s Ambassador and Special Envoy for Maritime affairs Nancy Karigithu has bagged a global accolade.
Amb. Nancy Karigithu, who is also the immediate former Principal Secretary Maritime affairs in the Ministry of Transport was recognized among the World’s top 100 high ranking influential people within the Global Shipping Industry by @LloydsList 13th edition.
“I am honoured and humbled to receive this recognition. Being an international industry the sum total of our individual actions towards improving the maritime sector, also the biggest contributor to the growth of the global economy, do count for something,” said Karigithu.
The 13th edition of Lloyd’s List’s One Hundred People, ranking influence and power within shipping, features a familiar cast of characters and some maybe not so familiar, reflecting the next generation making a mark on the industry.
2022’s defining moment has come from the EU, which has overtaken the IMO as the most influential force in the industry, by taking tangible action to address climate change.
