Piracy Threat Still a Real Concern Finds SHADE Conference

Press Release
Tuesday, March 26, 2013

Piracy, Private Security Companies, & Best Maritime Practice discussed at 27th Shared Awareness and Deconfliction (SHADE') conference.

Military officers, government officials and trade representatives attended the SHADE conference, hosted by the Combined Maritime Forces (CMF).

The quarterly conference was chaired by CMF in conjunction with NATO and the European Union Naval Forces (EUNAVFOR), and provides a forum for states, navies and industry members involved in counter-piracy operations in the region to share information and ideas.
It also allows everyone taking part in the crackdown on piracy to coordinate their efforts, and ensure everybody is working towards shared goals.

Subjects discussed at yesterday’s conference included the use of Best Maritime Practice by industry, armed security teams, and other methods in place to deter and defeat the threat of piracy in the region.

One of the key themes of the conference was the simple fact that while there had been a huge improvement in the piracy situation, it is in no way time to be complacent. “The pirate threat is still a real concern,” said CMF Chief of Staff Captain Christopher Shay USN. “We’ve done some great work, but if we take our foot off the gas now those successes could quite easily be reversed.”

The Conference also saw the active participation of the Chinese, Indian and Russian anti-piracy task groups, who, whilst not part of the CMF-NATO-EUNAVFOR partnership, gave presentations and agreed to share information with partnership forces and trade organizations.

Capt. Shay said: “It was great to see representatives from the independent deployers’ Task Groups turning up. Their input is incredibly valuable to everyone involved in SHADE, and we welcome their future cooperation.”
