Seychelles; 2014 Piracy & CGPCS Discussion Meeting

THE HIGH level Committee on Piracy (HLCP) has resumed its work for the new calendar year, with a meeting held at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, chaired by the Minister for Home Affairs and Transport, Mr. Joël Morgan, on Thursday 23 January 2014.

The first meeting of the year provided an opportunity to discuss issues pertaining to maritime security and in particular Seychelles’ participation at an upcoming Contact Group for Piracy off the Coast of Somalia (CGPCS) meeting in Paris, France, which will be chaired by the European Union Contact Group on anti-piracy.

While piracy activity has been significantly dampened by the combined operations of regional and international naval forces since it peaked in 2010, it is universally agreed that strong vigilance needs to be maintained.
