Press reports this week suggest that hundreds of ships are switching off their electronic tracking devices in order to escape detection in European waters. The UK’s Times reports that in January and February 40 ships entered European waters after leaving Libya’s coast, raising fears that illegal migrants and weapons are being smuggled into Europe.
The importance of effective maritime security measures, whether it’s in fending off pirate attacks on the coast of Africa or countering other illegal activities, is undeniable.
Addressing these concerns and looking at recent developments, Alistair Galloway, Frontier Horizons & Endeavour Maritime, will address the burning topic of Security and the Need for Extreme Vigilance at the Monaco Wealth Forum on March 15.
