ReCAAP ISC event focuses on proactive response against piracy

Fecha de la noticias: 13/06/2018 • Publicada: 13/06/2018 

The annual ReCAAP Information Sharing Centre (ISC) Piracy and Sea Robbery Conference 2018 was held on 12 June for the first time in Hong Kong, China, under the theme “Counter Piracy: Proactive Response”, to underscore the importance of staying vigilant and not taking for granted the success that Asia had achieved in reducing the number of piracy and sea robbery incidents over the past decade

ReCAAP ISC, BIMCO and INTERTANKO co-organised the event, with the support of the Hong Kong Shipowners Association. Masafumi Kuroki, Executive Director of ReCAAP ISC, stated:

"This year’s ReCAAP ISC Piracy and Sea Robbery Conference addresses developing situations in the Sulu-Celebes Seas, the Horn of Africa and the Gulf of Guinea, as well as pertinent topics such as oil cargo theft and the situation of armed robbery against ships in Indonesia.  In bringing the Conference to Hong Kong, we hope to engage the shipping community in China and foster a dialogue between the shipping industry and regional authorities, for the welfare of seafarers and the safety of sea lanes."

Taking stock of the current situation in Asia and sharing the situation of piracy and sea robbery in other parts of the world, including the Horn of Africa and Gulf of Guinea, the Conference also featured speakers from the Philippine Coast Guard, the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency, Indonesia’s BAKAMLA, EU NAVFOR (Horn of Africa), MDAT-GoG (Gulf of Guinea), ReCAAP ISC, and the shipping industry. Together, these speakers addressed the issues and situations across Asia, the Horn of Africa, and the Gulf of Guinea.

"In order to keep up with the ever-developing threat, we need to continuously improve our cooperation, processes and procedures. The key to our success includes that anti-piracy lessons learnt from across the globe are shared. By doing this, measures which have proven successful in reducing piracy and armed robbery at sea in one region can be recognised, developed and adapted to other regions".

Dr. Phillip Belcher, INTERTANKO’s Marine Director, added:

"Piracy and armed robbery around the globe takes many forms and is proving very hard to eradicate. By looking at what works we can see that the Asian model of a coordinated response, backed by proper intelligence, provides a good template for how to deal with this scourge. Those hard won lessons are now being applied to the new threats that the shipping industry is facing off Yemen".
