Who is better to lead the initiative to sustainable management of marine resources than a country with a massive portion of ocean itself? Indonesia is proudly hosting the World Ocean Conference 2009 in Manado, the capital of North Sulawesi province, well-known for one of the most beautiful diving spots in the world, Bunaken National Marine Park.

121 countries will attend the summit that is scheduled to last for five days starting May 11, 2009. Despite the WHO raising the status of the swine flu outbreak to Phase V, the World Ocean Conference 2009 is still be held as planned. Pretty confidence, right?
