Chief Director for Maritime Strategy at the South African Navy, Rear Admiral Bernhard Teuteberg, will deliver the military keynote address on the morning of Thursday, 8 November.

Measures by Africa for Africa
“With the recent discovery of offshore oil and gas in East and West Africa, the necessary exploration activities have seen a proliferation of sea crimes and piracy affecting this lucrative business sector,” says the event director Tracey-Lee Zurcher. She explains: “this not only hinders the process of timely mining and exploration, but costs the industry millions of dollars per annum in security, risk analysis and ransom payments. During the upcoming Maritime & Coastal Security Africa conference we will focus on building a collaborative understanding of what can be done by Africa for Africa in the constant battle against piracy in these oil-rich regions.”

According to Tracey-Lee Zurcher, the multitude of challenges faced by maritime stakeholders includes securing African ports and sea trade lanes, combatting illegal fishing, pollution and smuggling. She adds: “the proliferated risk of piracy for international traders has taken its toll on African economies as 90% of trade in Africa is seaborne.”
