Quotes

"The system meets the International Maritime Organisation's (IMO) standard of surveillance, which is set at 99.8 per cent efficacy and the very fact that we have such facility even deters organised criminals from the domain. If the insurance people have the confidence because the risk levels are reduced, they are likely to reduce the insurance premiums (on vessels calling on Ghana's maritime domain) and that will also reduce the cost of doing business. All these will translate into making our destination attractive, and for that matter a maritime hub" Mr Azumah added
"Last year alone there were over 50 incidents of ships just being hijacked, taken hostage, their cargo stolen, the crew molested sometimes even killed. Fortunately we (Ghana) haven't suffered any of these insecurities. but then we are not complacent."
"I can say confidently that, the vision to produce professionally trained Military officers and men who are subject to the Constitution of Ghana and equipped to function effectively to defend the territorial integrity of our dear country is on course" Mr. Woyongo stated
"The conference will bring together the most senior decision makers in Ghana and West African maritime domains, with all looking to find the next technological solutions that will assist in their desire to get a complete picture of the legal and illegal activities in their coastal waters."
