Somalia on Monday launched a draft policy paper aimed at revamping the maritime sector to help ensure marine safety and curb pollution.

The Somali Maritime Code received backing from the country's key maritime stakeholders and development partners after its launch in Mogadishu.

Deputy Prime Minister Mohamed Omar Arteh, who presided over the launch, said the revised Maritime Code will cover matters pertaining to maritime safety, maritime pollution and maritime commercial laws. 

"Somalia is faced with great opportunities but also with great challenges. We are positioning ourselves to take full advantage of our position as a littoral country," Arteh said in a statement released by the Africa Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM).

"We also expect International Maritime Organization (IMO) to help us to take advantage of those opportunities while also helping us meet the challenges of capacity," the minister added. 

A follow-up technical forum to flesh out issues on the proposed draft policy, which has been under development for four years, will be held in Kigali, Rwanda from July 12-15
