The Interregional Maritime Security Institute (ISMI) is set to organise a training programme on ‘targeting and control of containers’ later this month.
The crucial training programme will start from October 12, and run through to October 15, 2021.
Some twenty auditors - customs officers, police officers, maritime affairs administrators, naval officers, gendarmes - from 14 countries of the Gulf of Guinea are expected to attend.
The course will take place at ISMI, on the campus of the Regional Academy of Marine Sciences and Techniques (ARSTM) in Yopougon, Abidjan.
This training is supported by the Republic of Côte d'Ivoire and organized by the French Cooperation via the Directorate of Security and Defense Cooperation (DCSD), in partnership with the French Directorate General of Customs and Excise (DGDDI).
The European project SEACOP aimed at fighting against illicit maritime trade and associated criminal networks will contribute with the provision of an expert.
