DATE: December 13, 2012 COUNTRY: Australia PORT: all ports AMSA agreement with Korean Coast Guard 

On Monday 10 December, a high level delegation from the Korea Coast Guard, led by Vice Commissioner General Suk Kyoon Kim, met with members of the AMSA Executive in our Sydney office to sign a Memorandum of Understanding on cooperation in maritime search and rescue and marine pollution response.
The meeting was an opportunity to discuss the challenges and priorities of managing an increasingly complex maritime environment.
AMSA Chief Executive Officer Graham Peachey spoke of the projected growth in shipping in our region and the reforms and management measures that have been recently implemented to respond to those challenges. Other AMSA executives briefed the visitors on Australia’s search and rescue and pollution prevention and response arrangements.
The Korea Coast Guard has an operational focus. It faces similar challenges to AMSA but is primarily focused on protecting their maritime sovereignty and security, ensuring maritime safety and protecting the marine environment from pollution incidents. Its executives have a strong interest in strengthening international cooperation through sharing of information with neighbouring countries and the wider international community.
