​From 27 to 31 January 2014, 25 middle managers from the port communities of Tema and Takoradi (Ghana) will participate in Module 1 of UNCTAD's Modern Port Management course. The training is part of the UNCTAD TrainForTrade* Port Training Programme. The event marks the beginning of the third cycle of the programme in Ghana.

An UNCTAD representative will lead the training along with senior managers from Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority. These senior managers have been trained as instructors by UNCTAD. 

The major focus of Module 1 is the evolution of international trade and transport, in particular maritime transport. The other seven modules of the course will be delivered in 2014-2015.
