Africa Maritime Security Forum
As a result of increased maritime security challenges across Africa, global naval capabilities have assembled to collaboratively counter illicit maritime activity within the region. To effectively utilize and enforce additional resources, it is essential for Africa’s navies to enhance interoperability, joint tactics and exercises to successfully improve maritime security and stability. To support this, the inaugural Africa Maritime Security Forum hosted by the Senegal Navy in Dakar 20- 22 January 2020 will feature amplified networking exercises and interactive platforms for maritime leaders to formulate collaborative approaches to integrate capabilities for enhanced maritime security.
Hosted during the Senegal Navy’s 45th birthday celebrations, Africa Maritime Security Forum will reveal Senegal’s impressive naval base and fleet capabilities to the international community as well as their commitment to international navy cooperation. The 45th birthday celebrations will see the participation of Africa’s naval leadership as they commemorate Senegal Navy’s contributions to maritime security and further empower collaboration.
