Indian Ocean



The Indian Ocean, lying to the north and south of the equator, is bordered by the African and Asian continents to the west, north, and north-east; by Australia to the southeast; and along the southern border, it merges into the Southern Ocean and the continent of Antarctica. There are several groups of small islands off the coasts of Africa and Asia, as well as the Indonesian archipelago to the east. Small Islands Voice activities have started in a number of the smaller islands. There are many international, regional and national governmental and non-governmental agencies operating in the region in the fields of communications, environment and development.
