UKMTO Weekly Piracy Report

Friday, December 23, 2016


1. There are no significant events to report this week.


2. The penultimate Weekly Report of 2016 focusses on the multi-national effort to combat acts of piracy in the region. Since 2008 the presence of ‘Independent Deployers’ has played a vital role in the suppression of piracy and this week the Chinese Navy marked a significant milestone when it carried out its 1000th convoy task in the Gulf of Aden (a). The growing International presence in the area was highlighted by the announcement that the UAE is to build its second military facility in the Horn of Africa (b).


3. The Record of Discussion from the Maritime  Information and Exchange Vessel Operators Meeting (MIEVOM) held in Dubai on 8 Dec 16 is now available, please contact me if you wish to receive a copy.


4. From all us at the UKMTO, I wish you a Merry Christmas and prosperous New Year.
