theBRIDGE – Issue 7
Dear Maritime Professional, Welcome to theBRIDGE from The Security Association for the Maritime Industry (SAMI),  in this latest issue we reflect on the latest from across the maritime security sector, as well as the work the association and the wider membership has been undertaking over the past few months.READ theBRIDGE ONLINE >>

In this edition of theBRIDGE we look forward into 2015 and the myriad maritime security issues that unfortunately continue to affect shipping. From the ever changing faces of piracy in both the Gulf of Aden and Gulf of Guinea through to a new surge in Petro Piracy across South East Asia. The piracy problem looks set to stay for another year.

We are very pleased to feature a special report from Stephen Spark, who recently visited the Seychelles.Stephen spoke to Minister of Foreign Affairs, Jean Paul Adam about the challenges they faced in tackling the effects of Piracy.

We also take a look at the increasing problem of mass maritime migration, and the large scale sea rescues these movements can all too often necessitate.

Once again we have had some great news updates from across the membership and this issue covers a whole host of articles on a wide range of maritime security matters, event reports and project updates.



As ever we hope you find theBRIDGE of interest and we welcome your feedback on any of the topics raised. Please email we look forward to hearing from you.



Kind Regards

SAMI Secretariat
