“As an island nation, almost uniquely depending on international trade, we in Ireland know and value the importance of our ports, and all who work there. The UNCTAD TrainForTrade programme is vitally important in achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Climate and I am so very proud that our ports here in Ireland and Irish Aid, have been participating with the English-speaking network. ”
