African Ports Conference in December

Maritime experts from the African continent will meet in Durban, South Africa on the 10th and 11th of December for the 35th African Ports and Maritime Conference which will chart ways of enhancing regional integration in the drive to economic sustainability espoused by its leadership.

The experts, drawn from all major ports in the continent, regional economic commissions, shippers and transporters will be attending the 35th African Ports and Maritime Conference, organised jointly by the Port Management Association of Eastern and Southern Africa (PMAESA) and the Transnet National Ports Authority (NPA) of South Africa, with the support of the South African Association of Ship Operators and Agents (SAASOA) who have assisted with marketing the event in South Africa.

The conference; to be held at the ultra-modern International Conference Centre in Durban, is a popular year-ender for industry executives because of the relevance of the themes which cut across the maritime spectrum and the high calibre of attendees. The theme this year is “Linking Ports to Corridors to enhance Regional Integration”.

The Conference will also be focused on the issues related to Climate change in connection with the preparation of the upcoming World Climate Change Conference which will take place in Copenhagen, also in December, and in connection with the launch of the Africa Green Port Initiative scheduled in 2010. The Secretary General of PMAESA Mr. Jerome Ntibarekerwa has sent out an appeal to all stakeholders in the transport sector, whose deliberations could hold the key to unlocking the continents latent potential, to register for the conference.“By bringing these experts together, we provide a platform for exchange of ideas and best practices which should enable many of the players to harmonise their activities for the better exploitation of the resources within our continent.”
