The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) will train 28 middle port managers in Ghana under its Module 4 TrainForTrade programme starting February 6-10, 2012.

The training programme which is in collaboration with the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA) will focus on the future challenges to Ghanaian ports.

According to the UN trade agency,  the Module aims to “improve trainees´ understanding of strategies to create new competitive advantages for the port; reinforce port safety and improve the health of staff members; put into place environmental protection policies and implement quality management.”

The training will be delivered by local instructors – many of them successfully trained by the UNCTAD/TrainForTrade during the previous cycle of the programme, it indicated.

The training, funded by the Iris Aid, will be held in Takoradi.
