The President of Seychelles, Danny Faure, has called for an increase in collective action towards maritime security for stability in the region in his address at the SADC summit for heads of states and governments in Namibia, State House said on Saturday.

“It is of utmost importance that we collectively talk on the curbing of international maritime crimes. These will create a more attractive business environment, will attract investors and foreign direct investment to our region, and thereby enable us to better compete and trade between ourselves and with the rest of the world,” said Faure.

The 38th summit of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) which ends on Saturday is taking place under the theme “Promoting Infrastructure Development and Youth Empowerment for Sustainable Development”.

Faure said that the southern part of the world has a commendable collective stretch of seashore, a wide collective oceanic territory and with it, highly relevant and important exclusive economic zones.
