TrainForTrade, in cooperation with the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) local organising committee, will deliver Module 3 of the Modern Port Management Course from 24 – 28 October 2016 in Manila. 25 middle managers from the port communities of the Philippines who are enrolled in the UNCTAD TrainForTrade Port Management Programme will participate in the course.
The module will be delivered by a port expert from Ireland, along with senior managers from PPA who have been certified by TrainForTrade as local trainers.
The third of the eight training modules examines the external functions of a port system in the areas of safety, cargo and handling. It reviews commercial port operations and the different services offered to the main port users.
The General Manager of PPA, Atty. Jay Daniel Santiago graced the opening of the workshop delivery and extended his support to the participants during the ceremonies.
