Philippine Coast Guard to Step Up Its Standards

first_imgThe United States Coast Guard (USCG) together with the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) this coming Monday will once again hold a joint maritime enforcement curriculum development course as part of the agency’s aim to prioritize maritime security in the country.Coast Guard commandant Rear Admiral Rodolfo Isorena said that the training will greatly enhance the PCG’s capability in the performance of their mandated task in line with the government’s firm commitment to prioritize maritime security and increase levels of awareness for a better working performance.The said training will be funded by the United States Export Control and Related Border Security Program (EXBS) and will be facilitated by USCG experts to step up the PCG standards in the conduct of export and border control.Isorena said that the goal of EXBS is to help prevent proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD), their missile delivery system, conventional weapons, and related items by assisting foreign governments to establish and implement effective export control system that meet international standards.The 10-day training will start this coming March 11 at the Coast Guard Ready Force (CGRF) Headquarters in South Harbor, Manila.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, March 8, 2013; Image: Philippine Navy View post tag: Guard March 8, 2013 View post tag: its Back to overview,Home naval-today Philippine Coast Guard to Step Up Its Standards View post tag: step Training & Education View post tag: Navy View post tag: News by topiccenter_img Philippine Coast Guard to Step Up Its Standards View post tag: standards View post tag: coast View post tag: Naval View post tag: Philippine View post tag: up Share this articlelast_img read more

Eguma Admits Real Bamako Will be Tough

first_imgEguma said the ties will represent a difficult proposition for his side as they look to make a favourable impression in their first-ever expedition into the waters of Africa’s premiere club competition.“I see the draw to face AS Real Bamako as an extremely tough one because they are a very big club,” he admitted.“They have a rich pedigree in CAF inter-club competitions and have a history of producing plenty of players for Mali’s senior national team.“Mali’s heritage in both the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) and African Championship of Nations (CHAN) defines them as a very strong footballing Nation so AS Real Bamako must be respected.“Don’t also forget that AS Real Bamako knocked (seven-time Nigerian champions), Enyimba out of this same competition in 2014.”Eguma, a veteran of many CAF Champions League battles with former clubs Enyimba and Dolphins is however not daunted by the prospect of facing such a tough opposition.The experienced coach explained that painstakingly detailed-pre-season preparations will put his side in fine fettle for the task at hand.“We have prepared very well for this tournament and it is actually a blessing in disguise that we start meeting the stronger sides from the early (stages of the competition),” he said“To become a champion, you must be ready to face the best.“If we must beat Real Bamako over two legs, everyone involved with the football club must be united, work hard and stay focused on the task ahead,” he said.Rivers United’s first leg clash with AS Real Bamako will take hold at the Stade Mamadou Konaté in Bamako on the weekend of February 10-12 with the second leg coming up a week later at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram CAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUECoach Stanley Eguma has admitted his Rivers United is in for two tough matches against AS Real Bamako of Mali in a preliminary round of the 2017 CAF Champions League.Rivers United will travel to Bamako to face the six-time Malian champions in the first leg in February 2017, before navigating the return fixture a week later in Port Harcourt.last_img read more
