RAKAM Is Best Communication Network For Maritime Community And Enforcement Agencies

KOTA KINABALU, Feb 29 (Bernama) -- The Maritime Community Friendly Interaction Programme (RAKAM) is the best communication and discussion network between the maritime community and enforcement agencies.

Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) Region 2 commander, Rear Admiral Datuk Khairul Anuar Yahya said via RAKAM, enforcement agencies including the RMN, marine police, Fisheries Department, Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) and the maritime community could conduct discussions to solve problems in the community.

"We have set three objectives in RAKAM, including boosting awareness in the maritime community that the RMN and other enforcement agencies are highly committed to ensuring the security of the nation's territorial waters.

"We also endeavour to foster good ties with the local maritime community to strengthen cooperation, especially in disseminating information," he said in his speech at a dialogue at the RMN base in Teluk Sepangar, near here, today.

He said RMN had created an initiative to speed up the dissemination of information by distributing cards containing the telephone and fax numbers of the operations rooms of MMEA and RMN to the maritime community.

"Both the operations rooms of the MMEA and RMN operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week and are contactable via WhatsApp. One only needs to take a picture of an incident and send it to the operations room, with information on its location and date," he said. (BERNAMA)
