PMTA Ports Conference Starts

The Pacific Maritime Transport Alliance (PMTA) kicks off its 40th annual conference today in Port Moresby under the theme “To improve Ports Productivity and Market Challenges”.

With technical support from the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC), members of PMTA and ports authority delegates from around the Pacific are meeting to discuss a number of items, including infrastructure and equipment, safety and security, emerging environmental concerns and training updates from the Pacific Maritime Association.

Key outcomes from this meeting will be the election of a new PMTA executive committee to serve for the next three years and agreed solutions to the urgent need for port dredging, for which it is hoped that this ongoing collective effort will conclude with a cost sharing approach that will greatly assist countries that need to fast track this exercise.

The conference will discuss concerns around climate change which will also include the presentation of a paper on the proposed green ports initiative intended to support Pacific Island countries and territories to develop and implement plans aimed at increasing the efficiency and sustainability of port operations which incorporate various energy and environmental concerns.
