AMSA donates laptops to regional partner

Friday 6 February 2015
AMSA’s Emergency Response Division recently donated laptops and docking stations to the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre (MRCC) Honiara, Solomon Islands.
L-R): Peter Young, MRCC Honiara; Australian Government workers Maria and Stuart; and Enest Legumana, MRCC Honiara

AMSA staff met Peter Young from the MRCC at a Pacific Islands, Countries and Territories meeting in 2011 and we donated a couple of second hand laptops to the Solomon Islands at that time. Three years on and those laptops needed to be replaced, so Peter contacted us to ask if we would consider donating again. 

The laptops were recently taken to Honiara by Australian Government workers and handed over to Peter at MRCC Honiara. 

We have strong relationships with our partner agencies in the region and continue to build on this through a variety of initiatives. Further information on our international engagement activities is available on our website.
