Damen has signed a contract with the International Organisation for Migration in Ankara, Turkey for the supply of six Search and Rescue (SAR) vessels for delivery in 2017. The boats are being financed by the European Union and will be operated by the Turkish Coastguard, to support the refugees and migrants rescue operations.
European shipowners welcome the own-initiative report of the European Parliament to be adopted this week on migration. The report outlines in detail how the EU should respond to the current migration challenge. Covering topics from human trafficking to asylum and EU external borders management, it also discusses the “search and rescue” operations at sea.
Presenting the key finding of the latest United Nations survey on international migrant trends, the UN Deputy Secretary-General stressed that the issue of migration is one of the most challenging and important that the Organization is taking on in the new global landscape.
A new inter-agency platform for information sharing on migrant smuggling by sea has been launched by the IMO
