The APFIC Executive Com mittee at its Seventy-fifth session comprised Sri Lanka (Chair), Philippines (Vice-Chair), Indonesia and Myanmar (Members), India (former Chair) and the Secretary of the Commission (as an ex officio Member). The Executive Committee agreed that there were common objectives between the FAO/APFIC Regiol Initiative on Blue Growth and the work priorities identified by the Commission. It recommended that the Regiol Initiative on Blue Growth and APFIC’s related work should be brought to the attention o f the FAO Asia-Pacific Regiol Conference (APRC), through the inclusion of an APRC agenda item on the contribution of fish to nutrition and food security. The Executive Committee agreed that there was a need for monitoring in order to assess the benefits and risks of FADs and artificial reefs in the region and agreed with the development of an approach to assess the ture and extent of illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing in the APFIC region. The Executive Committee developed the agen da of the APFIC regiol consultative workshop “Documentation and dissemition of successful sustaible aquaculture intensification practices in Asia” and reviewed the planned activity “APFIC regiol consultative workshop on improving the contribution of culture-based fisheries and related fishery enhancements in inland waters to blue growth”, noting that this was a timely contribution to the dialogue on blue growth and its potential in inland waters. The Executive Committee noted the endorsed regiol guidelines and training courses developed by APFIC and emphasized the importance of engagement with regiol partners to ensure their promotion within the region and provide suggestions in that regard. The Executive Committee reviewed the budget and expenses of the Commission and recommended that core allocation be sustained and suggested cost reduction strategies and means of encouraging greater contributions of in-kind support to the work of the Commission. The Executive Committee discussed the preparations for the Sixth APFIC Regiol Consultation Forum Meeting (RCFM) and the Thirty-fourth Session of the Commission to be held in Sri Lanka in January/February 2016. The Executive Committee agreed that the Seventy-sixth Session of the Executive Committee would be convened in the Philippines in September 2016 subject to confirmation by the Philippines’ government.

    Since 2006, APFIC has adopted a strategic planning approach to improve the effectiveness and focus of its work in support of its members. The initial plan was developed in part as a response to reviews of the performance of regional fisheries bodies in general but also in recognition of the changing context within which APFIC operated. In 2003, a review of the role of APFIC as a Regional Consultative Forum was carried out1 which resulted in the recommendation for it to adopt its current approach.
