The next steps will consist in the drafting and validating the training package for a delivery in the ASEAN in 2019.

This activity is anchored into a broader Development Account Project, titled “Leapfrogging skills development in e-commerce in South-East Asia in the Framework of the 2030 Development Agenda”. The overall objective of the project is to strengthen capacities of policymakers of beneficiary countries, namely Indonesia, The Philippines and Singapore, on e-commerce in two main areas:

  • Practical aspects of e-commerce, and
  • Digital Identity.

Partners in this project also include UNESCAP and UNCITRAL.

The workshop aimed at building upon the establishment of port performance indicators and measurement introduced during the first PPS workshop that collected and analyzed data from 2010 to 2013, by introducing data from 2014 as a data point and to expand the number of participating ports.

PPSWorkshopclasspicThe workshop also considered the essential link to strategic planning in the Scorecard; and the potential for further development of, and additions to, the suite of performance metrics and benchmarks. Importantly, the emphasis of the workshop is at augmenting the initial technical focus to allow greater time for each port to present results and their experiences of the process, stakeholder feedback, and contributions to the continuous improvement and development of the metrics. The key ingredient therefore is relating the measures to the national and local context.

42 senior managers from 6 countries representing the English, French, Spanish and Portuguese-speaking Port networks took part in the workshop.
