AL JADIR: "I am convinced that the gathering together of 34 senior port officials from 15 countries has stimulated mutually beneficial contacts. Not only have these contacts been established amongst the French-speaking participants from different regions of the developing world, but also an invaluable exchange of views with a major English-speaking port authority was made possible during the study-tour to Nigeria."

    INTRODUCTION: The eighth international course of training in port management ended in Abidjan on Friday (17 July).

    The course was sponsored by the United Nations Conference on Development and Trade (UNCTAD) in conjunction with two other international development agencies.

    SYNOPSIS: The closing ceremony took place in the capital's National Assembly building, and was jointly chaired by the Director of UNCTAD's Transport Division, Mr. Al Jadir, and Ivory Coast Navy Minister Lamine Fadika.

    The training programme concentrated on the search for more efficient methods of prot administration in finance, planning and management.
