The 10th World Congress of this Association will be held in Yeosu, Republic of Korea on 16-20th October 2014 and will be attended by delegates from 38 Member bays.   Yeosu Bay has been a member since 2009 and was host to EXPO 2012.  It is home to three of Korea’s national maritime parks and the area comprises many bays and over 300 islands.

 

The Theme of the Congress is “Bay Today and Tomorrow” and the occasion will enable delegates to learn of the major efforts being made by both the government of Korea and Yeosu Bay to reconcile the need to conserve Yeosu’s marine ecology with development of its fishing, aquaculture and chemical industries and its national tourist assets.
