From 18-22 July, 20 middle managers from the port communities of Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) who are enrolled in the UNCTAD TrainForTrade Port Management Programme will participate in the 6th of eight training modules.
Module 6 of the Modern Port Management Course focuses on the economic and commercial management of ports, and highlights the need for modern successful ports to invigorate their management and develop a commercial strategy to preserve their current customers and source new ones.
The module will be delivered by an expert from Ghana Portsand Harbours Authority (GPHA) and a port expert from Ghana, together with NPA senior managers who have been certified by TrainForTrade as local trainers. This strategy promotes South-South cooperation, as well as networking and exchange of best practices among member ports of the programme.
Nigeria is currently on its 1st cycle of the UNCTAD TrainForTrade Port Management Programme.
