Sharing news and information about developments in South Africa’s maritime and marine sectors
THE SOUTH AFRICAN MARITIME SAFETY AUTHORITY (SAMSA) IS A STATE OWNED ENTITY ENTRUSTED WITH A CRITICALLY IMPORTANT ROLE OF NOT ONLY ENSURING THE SAFE USE OF THE COUNTRY’S OCEANS AND INLAND WATERWAYS, BUT ALSO WITH HELPING FACILITATE THE DEVELOPMENT AND GROWTH OF THE MARITIME ECONOMIC SECTOR.
Linking closely to the mandate both as a requirement and a necessity, is constant engagement with various stakeholders, interested parties and critical role players.
Consistent with the above, SAMSA has several centres (see Home page) that are engaged in various activities in pursuit of its mandate to secure as well as facilitate development and growth of the maritime economic sector.
This blog, aptly named “The 10th Province” – to reflect on the vastness of the country’s maritime economic sector as represented both by the massive oceans space from the Atlantic, Southern and Indian Oceans, through to the inland water ways that include a number of big rivers crisscrossing the land, as well as present and potential opportunities for responsible exploitation – presents an additional platform upon which news and information on these activities is shared with stakeholders, shareholders, partners and the public in general on a regular basis.
Presented in multimedia format comprising text, audio and video; SAMSA trusts that you will find the news and information shared on the platform most useful to entice you to interact with the content presented.. Your views are just as important. Please do share them on the platform.
