A modest blessing ceremony for office opening marks the official use of CTI-CFF Regional Secretariat Building in Manado, North Sulawesi, Indonesia, today.

Widi A. Praktikto, CTI-CFF Executive Director, appeals all stakeholders - especially those who have activities in Manado to utilize the facilities and join forces in safeguarding marine resources for sustainable livelihood in Coral Triangle countries.

One of the real supports comes from the academic world, where Prof.Dr.Ir Ellen Joan Kumaat, the honorable Rector of University of Sam Ratulangi, Manado attends the event and delivers her supportive speech to CTI-CFF's presence that would bring significant changes to Manado and CT6 countries.

Other guests that are attending the ceremony is the Oceans and Fisheries Partnership of USAID RDMA that has come earlier on 29 February to attend a-2 day meeting (29 February - 1 March 2016) with CTI-CFF on the project partnership and implementation.

In short, the Regional Secretary staffs of CTI-CFF are ready to work from both Manado and Jakarta to implement the exciting programs on safeguarding the amazon of seas: Coral Triangle!
