The Asian Shipowners Forum (ASF) Safe Navigation & Environment Committee (SNEC) meeting in Singapore has expressed concern that the current economic crisis could lead to an upsurge in piracy around the world and has urged governments to be ready to meet an increased threat. In view of the deteriorating situation off the coast of Somalia and in the Gulf of Aden, the Committee encouraged its members to cooperate with and abide by the advisories and guidance issued by the Maritime Security Centre ? Horn of Africa (MSCHOA)1.

In light of current economic conditions, the Committee expressed concern that there might be an accompanying surge in the number of piracy and armed robbery attacks around the world. In this respect, the Committee urged all governments and littoral states to strengthen and increase their naval and air surveillance to deter any potential threats of pirate attacks. The Committee also urged all ship masters to maintain full vigilance and to adhere to established best management practices to deter these pirate attacks.

The Committee expressed its ?deep appreciation? to those governments which are providing naval and air assets to patrol the waters off the coast of Somalia and in the Gulf of Aden, and to those other Governments which are considering similar actions.
