Some of the world’s leading specialists on issues relating to deep sea minerals will attend a three-day workshop from June 6 through June 8 in Nadi.

The Deep Sea Minerals Project, administered by SOPAC, a division of SPC, and funded by EU will address legislative, regulatory, capacity requirements and environmental issues pertaining to deep sea minerals and mining for countries in the Pacific region over a four-year period.

Deep Sea Minerals Project Team Leader, Akuila Tawake, said that the project would work towards ensuring that sustainable seabed mineral resources management would bring tangible benefits to Pacific Island countries and their people.
