The UN's International Maritime Organization, IMO, will not be facing a revolution if the Director General of the Danish Maritime Authority, Andreas Nordseth, is elected as new Secretary General of the organization, says the experienced shipping official in his first interview after the Danish government last week officially nominated Nordseth as successor to the current IMO Secretary General, Koji Sekimizu, from January 2016.

Before the election of the IMO's new Secretary General, which will take place in June or July next year, all the candidates will have to be formally nominated at an IMO meeting set for December. So far Denmark, with Andreas Nordseth, is the only one in the running, and the former seafarer reveals that the organization will not face drastic changes if he ends up with majority support.
