Third Symposium of Navies from the Community of Portuguese-Speaking Countries Is Inaugurated

first_img The opening ceremony for the 3rd Symposium of Navies from the Community of Portuguese-Speaking Countries (CPLP) took place on May 8, at the Naval War College in Rio de Janeiro, with the presence of Defense Minister Celso Amorim, and the commander of the Navy, Admiral Julio Soares de Moura Neto. During his speech, the Defense Minister emphasized that one of the expected results of the event is the presentation of a feasible proposal for mutual cooperation among all participants in order to increase “maritime security” in each country’s jurisdictional waters, without infringing their national sovereignty. Admiral Moura Neto emphasized that, aside from strengthening ties and moving forward on naval partnerships, the symposium is an opportunity for the member countries to demonstrate significant integration among the Navies and Coast Guards present, highlighting their common aspects: history, culture, and language. After the official event photograph, a collective interview began with the heads of the delegations attending the symposium – Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Mozambique, Portugal, Sao Tome and Principe, and East Timor. The interviewees answered questions about the cooperation projects that would be discussed at the event. Soon after, Dr. Antônio Celso Alves Pereira gave a lecture, “Reinforcing Joint Surveillance of Jurisdictional Waters.” For the lecturer, the CPLP is one of the most important international forums for its member countries due to the possibility of cooperation in a variety of areas, from the development of projects in different fields to sectoral meetings, such as the 3rd Symposium of Navies from the CPLP. In the afternoon, the attending delegations began their presentations, starting with the Angolan Navy, which discussed the significant role played by the Navy in developing the economies of African countries and emphasized the importance of the Gulf of Guinea. Next, the Cape Verdean Coast Guard discussed the challenges faced by the country due to the extension of its maritime space and presented the resources it has available to ensure maritime security in the region. Continuing with the presentations, the Mozambique Navy discussed the impact of piracy and maritime crimes in the Indian Ocean, such as the increased cost of transporting merchandise by sea, clarifying the actions taken by the country to solve this problem. Subsequently, the Portuguese Navy also highlighted the extension of Portuguese waters, equivalent to 19 times the national territory, and the twofold use of the ocean, military and non-military, as well as emphasizing the importance of the production, dissemination, and integration of information among the member countries in order to ensure full use of the ocean. After that, the Sao Tome and Principe Coast Guard presented their force’s mission, current situation, and future needs, with a view toward its strengthening and development.
