Officials Gather for APS Annual Planning Conference

Maritime professionals from Africa, Europe, and the U.S. began a 4-day conference aimed to enhance collaborative efforts to achieve maritime security in Africa, May 5.

The Africa Partnership Station (APS) Annual Planning Conference aims to identify capabilities necessary to achieve regional maritime security goals and in turn schedule APS training opportunities.

The conference provides a forum for discussion to achieve dialogue on maritime issues that affect all African nations.

Planners from participating nations will have the opportunity to map out APS events for their respective nations that align with their country’s maritime strategy and overall regional framework.

Eleven Euro-Atlantic partners have committed to working under the APS program and are intricately involved in the planning process for scheduling APS activities.
