    including Combating IUU Fishing in the Region was approved by the Ministers of

    Republic of Indonesia, Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Malaysia, Papua

    New Guinea, The Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Timor-Leste and Vietnam on 4

    fishing in the areas of the South China Sea, Sulu-Sulawesi Seas (Celebes Sea) and the

    Arafura-Timor Seas.
