Title: "Djibouti: Renewed Interest in Maritime Security Facility Next to Chinese Base"
Author: Michael Edward Walsh
Publisher: University of Southern California
Event: Conference on the Djibouti Code of Conduct
Synopsis: "Thanks to millions of dollars in funding from the government of Japan, the Djibouti Regional Training Center (DRTC) opened its doors two years ago. However, the facility has gone largely unused since then. That may be about to change. In recent weeks, the government of Djibouti has expressed a renewed interest in making use of the facility as a meeting space for events related to the Djibouti Code of Conduct. If this happens, the facility’s potential will finally start to be realized."
