Senior officers of maritime law enforcement and regulatory agencies from 16 ReCAAP Member States gathered today in Seoul, South Korea for a two-day meeting to take stock of the evolving maritime safety situation, and strengthen their collective efforts in the shared mission to combat piracy and sea robbery in Asia.

Hosted by ReCAAP’s Korean Focal Point, the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries, and co-organised with ReCAAP Information Sharing Centre (ISC), the Focal Point Senior Officers’ Meeting (FPSOM) will provide an update on the latest situation of piracy and sea robbery in Asia and share best practices from participating agencies. There will also be discussions of common issues such as “timely and accurate information sharing” and “anti-piracy legislation.” A representative of the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime (UNODC) will share its expertise on anti-piracy legislation. As part of the programme, participants will also have a dialogue with the South Korean shipping industry.
