    Background: GHANA'S COMMISSIONER FOR COMMUNICATIONS, MR. J. MATTHEW POKU, HAS CALLED FOR THE CREATION OF A PERMANENT SHIPPING SECRETARIAT IN WEST AFRICA TO FACILITATE CLOSER CO-OPERATION BETWEEN SHIPPING LINES IN THE REGION.

    ADDRESSING REPRESENTATIVES OF SHIPPING LINES AT THE MINISTRY OF COMMUNICATIONS IN ACCRA ON MONDAY (11 MARCH), MR. POKU SAID THERE WAS ALWAYS A DIFFICULTY IN APPLYING DECISIONS TAKEN AT A SECRETARIAT IN EUROPE TO WEST AFRICA LINES.

    IT WAS THEREFORE NECESSARY TO ESTABLISH A SECRETARIAT IN WEST AFRICA TO MAINTAIN THE CLOSEST POSSIBLE CO-OPERATION BETWEEN SHIPPING LINES, MR. POKU ADDED.

    MONDAY'S MEETING FOLLOWS A CONFERENCE LAST WEEK IN LAGOS DURING WHICH THE RATIONALISATION OF SHIPPING SERVICES BETWEEN WEST AFRICAN COUNTRIES AND EUROPE WAS DISCUSSED.

    REPRESENTED AT THE MEETING WERE THE GHANA BLACK STAR LINE, NIGERIAN NATIONAL SHIPPING LINE, PALM LINE, ELDER DEMSTAR LINE, WOERMANN LINE, SCANDINAVIAN SHIPPING LINE, HOLLAND WEST AFRICA LINE AND THE FRENCH CONFERENCE LINE.
