The SEAFDEC-Sweden Project convened the Meeting on the Development of Monitoring, Control, and Surveillance (MCS) Network for the Southern Andaman Sea Sub-region on 20-21 August 2019 in Bangkok, Thailand. A total of 33 (11 women and 22 men) delegates from various fisheries, enforcement, and maritime security agencies of Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand, FAO, SEAFDEC, and Regional Fisheries Policy Network attended the Meeting.

During the Meeting, countries shared ideas on common priority areas for data sharing and coordination in relation to MCS around the Southern Andaman Sea, discussed on ways forward on strengthening MCS network, and suggested communication mechanism for information exchange in connection with the existing cooperation initiatives in the Southern Andaman Sea sub-region.
