The National Fisheries Society (SNP) and the Civil Association BASC PERÚ signed an inter-institutional cooperation agreement to promote good practices in the international trade of fishery products.

According to the signed document, both institutions undertake to publicize the importance of the BASC Control and Safety Management System for the fishing industry, as well as disseminate specialised information on safety prevention issues.

The president of the National Fisheries Society, Cayetana Aljovín, said that this alliance allows to show the real commitment of the fishing industry with the transparency of its operations.

“The fight against smuggling of goods, drug trafficking, money laundering, corruption, terrorism and other illegal practices is a task that belongs to all of us,” he said.

For its part, the president of BASC PERU, Patricia Siles, said that this agreement is of great importance, not only for the benefit of promoting safe international trade, but because the fishing sector is key to the economic development of the country.

“At BASC we believe in the importance of fostering a culture of safety prevention and good practices and thus establish mechanisms to protect against illegal activities that attempt to violate the operations of the fishing sector,” he noted.

The agreement will last for two years and seeks to serve as an example for more associations to join the commitment to make the security of the supply chain of foreign trade prevail and thus make sustainable the growth of companies in the country.
