IMDO attend UNCTAD Workshop on Port Performance

The IMDO recently attended ‘TrainForTrade’, a Port Performance Workshop that took place over four days in November in Valencia, Spain. The aim of the workshop, an initiative of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), is to build greater competitiveness based on higher standards of performance through a sustainable data sharing community.

The IMDO, as Ireland’s representation, was joined by representatives from 18 other countries across the world including Angola, Argentina, Benin, Cameroon, Dominican Republic, Gabon, Ghana, Guatemala, Guinea, Haiti, Mauritania, Peru, Philippines, Portugal, Senegal, Spain, and Togo.

Irish Aid, the government’s programme for overseas development, was also involved in the organisation of the workshop, which facilitated the gathering of a network of ports from both developing and developed countries, to encourage the exchange of information and transfer of expertise.
