Today, SEACOP begins a strategic interregional meeting titled “FROM COCAINE TO TIMBER: NEW CHALLENGES FOR SEACOP NETWORK VI.”
Bringing together 8 countries from the region and international partners in a united effort against maritime trafficking, the event marks a significant commitment.
“We extend our congratulations to the EU-funded SEACOP Project on this important initiative. We reaffirm our commitment to collaborate with national agencies in support of any effort that contributes to advancing the fight against drug trafficking and related crimes,” stated National Drug Council (CND) President Jaime Marte Martínez.
“We believe a concerted effort is the most effective way to address drug trafficking in our region as this phenomenon has global implications and must be tackled transnationally.”
The three-day event brings together representatives from SEACOP partner countries in the Caribbean and Latin America, including Anguilla, Antigua, Colombia, Guyana, Grenada, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, and the Dominican Republic, as well as representatives from EU Delegations, international stakeholders, and EU-funded entities actively involved in combating illicit maritime trafficking.
