March 10, 2022 : visit of the Maritime Trade Information Centre (MTIC) in Portsmouth

On 10 March, the commanding officer of the MICA Center went to Portsmouth and met with the Maritime Trade Information Centre (MTIC) teams.

This centre includes the twin cell of the MDAT-GoG team in Brest and the British core of the UKMTO, which has a branch in Dubai.

The MTIC, like the MICA Center, contributes to a better maritime domain awareness and, in connection with the operational staffs, works 24/7 in the interest of the maritime industry and for the safety of seafarers.

This visit was an opportunity for the two MDAT-GoG teams to physically maintain the link that unites them virtually on a daily basis and to exchange views on the perspectives of MDAT-GoG.

This synergy between the Royal Navy and the French Navy contributes to the reinforcement of maritime security in support of regional organisations and in particular the Yaoundé architecture.
