According to Dr. Peterside, “developing the blue economy is paramount across the globe now, and the public and private sector have to collaborate to sustainably harness the potentials of our maritime sector for the benefit of the Nigerian economy especially as the Federal Government continues the economic diversification drive”

He further suggested that with improved maintenance culture, adequate data management and statistics as well as articulated actions from stakeholders backed up with political will, Nigeria will be a leading light in the comity of maritime nations.

Dr Peterside further advocated synergy within stakeholders stating that the Agency with the support of the Federal Government is working assiduously to ensure that Nigerians reap the benefits that abound the sector. He pointed out that the newly approved maritime security architecture will effectively reduce piracy and other related sea crimes.

The Nigerian Economic summit serves as a platform where stakeholders from both public and private sectors converge to chart a way forward for the development of the Nigerian economy.
