In his talk, Capt. Martin presented maritime Malaysia in the context of history, geography and economy. He described on issues relating to traditional and non traditional security, aeronautical & maritime safety and the effects of climate change. He noted on the need for better ocean governance and the role MIMA plays on developing policy papers for the government as a maritime policy Think Tank. He explained on the policy papers for the National Single Maritime Single Points of Contact (NMSPOC), Private Maritime Security Companies (PMSC), Harmonising Aeronautical and Maritime SAR (HAMSAR) and the East Sabah KESBAN at Sea Project – Developing Holistic Security for East Sabah. During the Q & A session, Capt. Martin encouraged NRC to view Grand Strategic Level Leadership beyond the Malaysian horizon. He took the opportunity to relate his experience in the United Nations Headquarters New York where MAF officers have the opportunity to be Seconded in Senior Military positions or Staff appointments. With respects to Malaysia’s glorious involvement in peace processes around the world since 1960, NRC should seriously view senior leadership positions like Force Commanders and possibly Special Representative of the Secretary General (SRSG) for UN Missions, after retirement.
