A MARITIME leaders' seminar was recently held in Malaysia for the Asia-Pacific Heads of Maritime Safety Agencies (APHOMSA) last month. Maritime Safety Authority of Fiji (MSAF) chief executive officer John Tunidau was part of the meeting.

According to a statement from MSAF, the APHOMSA meeting brought together senior maritime officials and high-level delegates from the Asia-Pacific region to share ideas on innovative methods to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of their countries in terms of maritime safety and marine environment protection, as well as discussion on important matters of national interest.

The Fiji delegation was headed by the permanent secretary for the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport, Paul Bayly and Mr Tunidau.

About 20 member countries, four observer countries and five international and regional organisations attended the international meet. Fiji presented on current and emerging maritime issues especially issues influenced by the rapid growth of the maritime industry in the region.

According to a statement from MSAF, discussions centred on the four main pillars of APHOMSA:

i. Regional co-operation;

ii. Protecting the marine environment;

iii. Safety at sea including seafarer welfare; and

iv. Search and rescue.
