The maritime sector is one of the largest sectors in the world, followed later by the agricultural sector. This makes the countries in the world continuously develop their country’s potential within the maritime sector. One of the countries that are focused on developing its maritime sector is the countries in the african maritime academy.
It can be said that countries in Africa do have very good potential, to be maximized, to increase the country’s foreign exchange, as well as the life skills of its people.
Guarding the ocean and the country’s borders is a must
It is no secret that the borders of each country surrounded by the world’s oceans often lead to conflict and strife. This also should not be underestimated by countries in Africa. Therefore, in the African maritime academy, one thing that must be emphasized is the understanding of maritime conditions that exist in each country. At the same time knowing how to exist at the border. This is very crucial in avoiding maritime area conflicts caused by ignorance of the marine territories owned by each country.
Every ocean in the world has a unique, different, and of course abundant wealth. This also includes the maritime sector of africa. Because of this, the safeguarding and decisiveness of foreign and illegal vessels, which try to enter and steal State assets, must be acted firmly.
Preservation of marine ecosystems
Not only the oceans in Africa, but oceans throughout the world are currently experiencing a serious threat, caused by the work of poachers, who still often use poisons and bombs to catch fish. This causes damage to coral reefs and marine ecosystems. This is then exacerbated by the many uses of plastic and waste disposal which are still not well managed.
Africa has therefore taken decisive steps, one of which is by strengthening cooperation through the outbound African Development Community. This community will concentrate on taking care of everything that has been missed in maritime protection in Africa. Starting from the assertion of illegal fishing, then guarding the sea, to maximizing fish farming, and others.
Africa has now succeeded in strengthening its safeguards against the marine sector. They having previously received losses of up to $ 500 each year, caused by illegal fishing. In the future, the countries in Africa hope to develop the maritime sector more optimally, with cooperation with various countries in the world.
Those are some good news from the african maritime academy. Which, soon the next good news will be accepted by the world.
