Prospectus developed for a meeting to be held 15 – 18 January 2008

Participation in an exploratory expert Japanese Trust Fund meetings on the benefits of a “regional scientific advisory committee”, in June and October 2007 in Bangkok

The first meeting could not come up with directions or clear paths were to move. As confirmed during the second meeting what seems to be taking shape is more of an “internal” SEAFDEC project supporting mechanism. Importantly, it was, during both meetings, made very clear that this was distinctly different from the RFMM process in cooperation with ASEAN.
