The importance of maritime safety issues, where aspects related to the prevention, response and analysis of maritime accidents are incorporated, make joint action and interoperability essential, between the main stakeholders operating in the maritime sector.
With the establishment of cooperation between the institutions involved, the intention is to put into practice rules and procedures that aim to prevent the occurrence of maritime accidents within the area of responsibility of Cape Verde.
Thus, in alignment with the objectives of the State of Cape Verde and international and national maritime instruments, cooperation between the institutions in question, symbolizes a collective and synergistic commitment that essentially aims at the holistic implementation of best practices in the field of maritime security.
