About Africa Partnership Station

APS is in line with the mission of the United States Africa Command. It seeks to bring partnerships into action through cooperation among many different nations and organizations, and promotes maritime governance around Africa. Whether ships are pulling into ports and working with the host nation to address maritime issues, or countries partnering in law enforcement operations, these events fall within the scope of APS. APS is inspired by the belief that effective maritime safety and security will contribute to economic prosperity and security on land. To address each of these issues successfully, partners must work together with a common purpose.
