Appointment announcement Director of SPC's Fisheries

Appointment of Director of SPC’s Fisheries, Aquaculture and Marine Ecosystems Division

Moses Amos

Greetings from the Secretariat of the Pacific Community. I am pleased to announce that Mr Moses Amos has been appointed Director of SPC’s Fisheries, Aquaculture and Marine Ecosystems (FAME) Division. He will take up this position in SPC’s management team on 1 March 2014.

Mr Amos is a citizen of Vanuatu. He has a master’s degree in Biological Science from the University of Auckland and a Bachelor’s Degree in Zoology from Otago University, New Zealand. Mr Amos is fluent in English, Bislama, Melanesian Pidgin and has a working knowledge of French.

Mr Amos is currently the Director of the Department of Fisheries in Vanuatu, a position he has held over a period of 12 years from September 1997 to December 2006 and again from September 2010 till now. From January 2007 to March 2010 Mr Amos was Director of Fisheries Management at the Forum Fisheries Agency in Honiara.

Mr Amos has worked both regionally and nationally and has a strong grasp of the economic, political and cultural dynamics of the region as well as the fisheries’ regional and country policies, infrastructure and programmes. He has a strong background in the development and management of fisheries policies and their implementation at both national and regional levels. He has a very strong grasp of the key issues in fisheries in particular as seen from the perspectives of SPC’s island members.

Mr Amos’ previous role as a member of FFA’s management team will augur well in further strengthening the relationship between SPC and FFA in the fisheries sector which in turn will further strengthen the collective effort of both organisations to serve our mutual membership better.

On behalf of the Pacific Community that he will serve and the staff, development partners and stakeholders that he will work with, may I take this opportunity to congratulate Mr Amos on his appointment and welcome him to SPC
