MIEVOM Hosts CSO Alliance in Dubai

July 7th 2014
UKMTO hosts a quarterly Maritime Information Exchange Vessel Operators Meeting (MIEVOM) in Dubai. It is very poignant that it is held in the Mission to Seafarers complex as it focuses on the very people we all endeavour to support.

Over seventy people attended, many ship owners and operators, in addition to those involved in providing security for ships in the region. It is an invaluable exchange of information, ideas and informed views. There were briefs from the key military presence in the region, covering achievements and issues of concern from the last quarter and possible issues for the next three months. Then the floor was given over to general presentations, among them GAC, who presented ideas on the issues port agents face day to day.

CSO Alliance demonstrated our online platform, zeroing in on incidents that had been reported to the Alliance by members, which the military has subsequently declared false alarms. It is clear to all that our unique community of CSOs and the information held in our online system ensures we will become great allies of and a resource for the military. We are now developing working routines which deliver on these benefits for everyone involved.

We were grateful for the invitation from Lt. Cdr. Peter Harriman and the first class support from the team at UKMTO during this trip and as we look to the future.
