New Publication from Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies | SAIS Research Fellow: "... Since the Conference on the #Djibouti Code of Conduct, the IMO has been extremely candid with Djiboutian officials about the need to demonstrate their government’s commitment to make use of the #Japanese-funded Djibouti Regional Training Facility. In one exchange, an #IMO official explicitly warned a Djiboutian official that the DRTC is increasingly viewed as a failed project. The IMO official therefore urged the Djiboutian official to demonstrate that the center was open for business and reminded the Djiboutian official that the government would not be able to attract the support of more international partners as long as the facility remains idle. In their words, the government of Djibouti “cannot afford” to wait until the next calendar year to start planning events.
