TrainForTrade, in cooperation with the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) local organising committee, is currently delivering Module 2 of the Modern Port Management Course from 10 – 14 October 2016 in Manila. 26 middle managers from the port communities of the Philippines who are enrolled in the UNCTAD TrainForTrade Port Management Programme is participating in the course.

The module is being delivered by Mark Assaf, Chief, HRDS/TrainForTrade, along with senior managers from PPA who have been certified by TrainForTrade as local trainers.

The second of the eight training modules examines the port as a system, in particular the actions that a country could take in connection with port facilities to ensure that national ports (big or small; local, regional or national) develop and function efficiently.
