KUWAIT: For many years Kuwait depended on the Arabian Gulf for pearling and fishing as its main source of livelihood. Today, according to US Ambassador to Kuwait Douglas Silliman, Kuwait and other countries continue to use the Arabian Gulf as an important trade route for the transportation of oil and gas products to the world.
Thus the protection of the Arabian Gulf is just as important now as in the old days. Silliman was speaking at 'The Oceans' Protection Conference', mainly to showcase US President Barack Obama's ocean policy. The one-day seminar focused on three areas with respect to the Arabian Gulf: Cleaning the Ocean, Managing the Ocean and Monitoring the Ocean.
The conference was held in partnership with the Regional Organization for the Protection of Marine Environment, Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences, Kuwait University and the Environment Public Authority (EPA). "The Gulf is vitally important for the Gulf people," Silliman noted. "Nearly half of the world's population lives along the seacoast, and the livelihood and ability of people to move around the oceans are essential in maintaining a healthy global environment," he said. "The protection of our oceans is vital for human existence around the world. He underlined Obama's commitment to protecting the oceans and ecosystems as a matter of national policy that streamlined more than 100 laws that govern oceans. "We are trying to create a coordinated science-based approach to manage our coast and our oceans. US Secretary of State John Kerry has adopted the national policy and protection of the oceans as a key platform of Obama's administration," Silliman mentioned.
