MetadataShow full item record
The Philippines-Indonesia Border Committee Chairmen’s Conference, held here last Wednesday, has committed to bring to higher authorities a request to allow Philippine-flag fishing vessels to pass through the Indonesian Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) in going to high seas to conserve time and money. “We have requested the right of safe passage on Indonesia’s EEZ from General Santos City to the high seas because it is shorter and more cost-effective route and will ensure the freshness of our tuna catch,” said Fatma M. Idris, Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) regional director for the Davao Region.
