AFSEC 15 will return to Morocco this December

More information on AFSEC 15 coming soon. Watch this space! 


AFSEC 14 created a cross-cutting multinational forum that promoted inter-agency, inter-national, multi-national and regional solutions to the maritime security situation in the Gulf of Guinea.

The ill-equipped African nations on the West Coast of Africa are in effect providing the first line of defence and border security for the European Union. This situation is manifestly unsustainable and the international community; EU, U.S., G8++, UN and other bodies are actively engaging with ECOWAS, ECCAS, MOWCA and national governments to ensure security within the region in order to disrupt and dismantle transnational organised crime, combat illicit flows, and fight terrorism.

Don't just take our word for it!  

AFSEC 14 has been a great opportunity to exchange experiences with other staff from other countries and learn about the latest development from the technical and commercial side. Rear Admiral Cissoko CNS, Senegalese Navy
