From 22-26 February, 20 middle managers from the port communities of Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) who are enrolled in the UNCTAD TrainForTrade Port Training Programme will participate in the 4th of eight training modules at the Port of Calabar. The module will be delivered by port experts from Dublin Port Company (DPC) and Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA), together with NPA senior managers who have been certified by TrainForTrade as local trainers. This course delivery strategy promotes South-South cooperation, as well as networking and exchange of best practices among member ports of the programme.
Module 4 of the Modern Port Management Course examines the future challenges to ports which focuses on the main functions of commercial ports in the third millennium. Nigeria is currently on the 1st cycle of the UNCTAD TrainForTrade Port Training Programme.
