CI “Je suis très heureux d’avoir suivi avec succès tous les modules de formation en ligne et je regrette de n’avoir pas pu prendre part au séminaire de Dakar. Mais je demeure particulièrement reconnaissant à “Trainfortrade-CNUCED” de m’avoir offert cette opportunité inestimable de comprendre les enjeux du e-commerce. En effet, mon collègue Kacou Jean et moi en collaboration avec Mme KOUAKOU Aramatou travaillons activement en ce moment sur le projet de préparation du salon régional du e-commerce à Abidjan. C’est pourquoi je voudrais souhaiter être informé d’autres occasions de formation de ce genre afin de permettre à la Poste de Côte d’Ivoire (LA POSTE-CI) de tirer tous les avantages possibles de l’évolution des TIC et de leur impact sur la dynamique des besoins des consommateurs. ”

Maldives “This a very interesting program. It would be better if you conduct this training for certain region and invite participants of that region. Anyway this program will benefit our country very much from the knowledge we gained. It will be very easy for us to conduct distance learning program in the field of port management or other. We have learned enough to conduct a training program between the remote locations of the Maldives.”

Mohamed Hashim Director Maldives Ports Limited Rep. of Maldives

Ghana “The TrainForTrade program is a very good training activity. I have benefited substantially from the exposure. Obviously my skills in “IT” and general knowledge in Modern Port Management have improved. My gratitude to UNCTAD for organising this kind of training.”

Mr. Romeo T. Bortey Training Manager GPHA, Takoradi Ghana

Tanzania “The program is excellent and relevant to the developing nations. The participation of candidates from Maldives, Indonesia and Ghana enabled me to network and create an environment for future South-South interactions. Coming from an IT background, the use of an open-source platform (Moodle) for delivering this course has encouraged me to think and act in advising my CEO in adopting this platform since Tanzania ports has its own institution college (Bandari college) to train port and employees. UNCTAD’s support in conducting this course is very much appreciated and I will put what I have learned in practice.”

Mr. Daniel J. NDORI Tanzania Port Authority Tanzania

Indonesia “This training is so important for us. We can discuss and share information with other participants from different ports and countries. I hope that this training will be implemented in our port wall.”

To Mr. Sean Sherlock TD, Minister of State for Development, Trade Promotion & North-South Cooperation Program of Ireland, we are grateful for the benevolence of Irish Aid. To Mark and his staff, the job is not finished but thank you nevertheless. To the fine gentlemen and women of the Port of Cork Company, with the support of Dublin Port Company, Belfast Harbour Commissioners, and the UCC, thank you for sharing the DNA of your ports, your expertise and most of all your inspiring thoughts. Against the vastness and overwhelming complexity that characterize most advanced port systems in Europe and elsewhere, the simplicity and goodwill that we found in this part of the world is far beyond compare. As we embark on building centers of knowledge and excellence in our respective ports and networks, we remain confident that you will all continue to be with us to support us. Thank you.”
