 Essential Questions:

    • Where are the growing markets in 3-5 years (where do you expect opportunities to emerge)?
    • What are the most critical threats to maritime security?
    • How may maritime security facilitate access to those markets?
    • How do we prevent maritime crimes such as, but not limited to, piracy and armed robbery, stowaways, and terrorism from remaining a serious obstacle to growth and development in Africa?
    • How do we make sure, that the regions will benefit from real growth and not from exploiting opportunities for quick economic gain in the wake of emerging maritime security threats?

When signing up please indicate if your primary interest is West or East Africa.
