The meeting aimed to define the agenda in view of the challenges ahead of this largest hydrographic commission, especially in terms of implementation of the Universal Hydrographic Data Model S-100, as the basis for development of the IMO e-Navigation Concept. The HHI Director Vinka Kolić Bubić will manage the forthcoming 24th MBSHC Conference as the Chair.
