Ports of Sousse and Rades under scrutiny by Japanese

In an official correspondence received by the Merchant Marine and Ports Authority, The Overseas Coastal Area Development Institute of Japan (OCDI) through Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), informs about the choice of Tunisia as a model for the establishment and follow-up in the formulation of administrative and organizational development strategies.
This choice comes on the background of the participation of Mr. Chokri Laamiri, the central director of the port of Sousse, and Mr. Mohamed Kouraich Blouza, director of finance at a workshop organized in March and April in Japan and Thailand.
This Tunisian participation, which focused on reviewing organizational and administrative issues in the ports of Rades and Sousse and the development strategies of these two sites, resulted in the selection of our country from 14 countries participating in this workshop as a model for study and follow-up.




Through sending a team of Japanese experts to Tunisia to oversee a workshop that will discuss the ways and techniques of formulating development strategies through setting up the model of Sousse and Rades ports, as well as organizing a training course for the merchant marine and ports authority’ supreme tires about port planning, port-group relations and public-private partnership.
