Five Days of Success: Understanding the Significance of Legal Framework, Ocean Governance and Environmental Sustainability

We are thrilled to look back on the past five incredible days of our online training program, entitled Insights on the Legal Framework for Ocean Governance: Capitalising the UN SDG 14 towards Maritime Sustainability, an event that was made possible by the unwavering support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA), our esteemed local expert speakers, and our enthusiastic international participants. The MTCP training programme was officiated by our Chairman, YBhg. Dato’ Mohamed Suffian Awang, with his enthusiastic opening remarks, virtually addressed and welcomed the participants from Azerbaijan, Dominica, Mauritius, Oman, Sri Lanka and Tonga.

This initiative aimed to provide participants with a comprehensive overview of the legal frameworks in the Malaysian maritime sector through the understanding of the developed maritime legal frameworks in terms of implementation, sharing of best practices as well as on formulation of strategic action plans. Relevant modules of the programme include a wide range of topics, from the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), Blue Economy, Marine Pollution from Shipping Activities, Illegal, Unregulated and Unreported (IUU) Fishing, Climate Change and Marine Protected Areas (MPA).

These five days were a testament to the power of interactive learning, where experts and participants came together to explore crucial topics in a dynamic and engaging environment. We extend our sincere appreciation to all those who are involved in making this training programme a successful one – for their invaluable input and guidance throughout this journey. Their commitment and active participation were truly inspiring, creating an atmosphere of shared discovery and making the training programme a truly memorable experience. 

The remarkable achievement was greatly highlighted by Mr Mustaffa Khair Johari, the Assistant Secretary of the International Cooperation and Development Division MTCP, MoFA, during his closing remarks that put an end to the fruitful training programme. As we reflect on this successful program, we eagerly look forward to future endeavours that promise more exciting and insightful learning opportunities. MIMA, in the future, will continue to explore new horizons, expand our knowledge, and strengthen our bonds of collaboration with our stakeholders through engagements with every opportunity that lies ahead.

Thank you all for making these five days a resounding success. Here’s to more remarkable programmes and enriching experiences in the future!
