Maritime boundaries training At the 37th SOPAC session meeting held in Tuvalu 2008. Kiribati acknowledged the efforts of the Secretariate, with support from Ausaid in providing training and development of submissions concerning maritime boundaries. Stressed that these issues are critical to Pacific Island Countries not only in terms of managing mineral and fisheries resources but also in terms of determining EEZ and ECS territorial areas. Kiribati further touched on the issue of international momentum that was picking up and stressed its position on the need to pursue this opportunity. Seabed mining is an important issue for Kiribati given its vast marine area and there was great potential in this area, if appropriate technical research and advice was provided from SOPAC.
