Somalia leads talks on tuna license and revenue sharing in Seychelles 03-04 May, 2017.

Share This
It is widely estimated that lack of consensus within Somalia is costing the country up to $15m per annum in lost revenue from sale of Federal Tuna licenses. GEEL, along with other agencies including USAID, FAO and the World Bank, with additional assistance form the Seychelles Fishing Authority, are supporting a major Somali meeting, to be held in Seychelles, with objective of agreeing modalities and revenue sharing agreements for issue of these licenses to fish in the Somali EEZ.
To assist Somali Regional Administrations, and offices within the Federal Government, including the Finance Ministry, Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources, and Presidents and Prime Minister’s offices, to fully understand issues related to Tuna licensing, attendees will be provided with opportunity to learn more about Tuna management, catching and processing.
To encourage widespread coverage of Tuna issues on Somali media and the discussions across Somalia, along with increased understanding of the potential benefits to Somalia of a successful agreement being reached, GEEL will provide video footage of the proceedings on a daily basis.
Please contact me if you’re interested in speaking to any of the dignitaries present during the talks and wand HD video to use, or if you have any questions. Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
