The continued loss of so many lives in south-east Asia due to unsafe ferry trips is unacceptable, according to the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
Last year’s figures show that since 2000, there have been 163 accidents in the region involving ferries, killing more than 17,000 people.
To address the enhancement of safety measures, IMO organized a conference in Manila, the capital of the Philippines.
Stephanie Coutrix spoke with IMO’s Lee Adamson who is there for the event.
She began by asking him how important ferry transport is to south-east-Asia.
