The Nigerian Shippers’ Council (NSC) will be hosting a Sub-Regional Summit on ‘High Shipping Surcharges and Charges’, Sub-Regional Workshop on Status of Convention on Facilitation of International Maritime Traffic (FAL Convention) in the Union of African Shippers’ Council (UASC) member states and a Joint Standing Committee Meeting of the UASC from Monday August 26 to Wednesday August 28, 2019 at Ladi Kwali Hall, Sheraton Hotel, Abuja.

The events are a collaborative effort involving the UASC, United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and the Global Shippers’ Forum (GSF). The forums are aimed at providing an avenue for the UASC member countries to strategise and articulate common positions on how to checkmate the multinational shipping service providers/carriers with a view to adopting a collective position for presentation at the Annual General Meeting of the Global Shippers’ Forum scheduled for September in London.

It is also aimed at creating more awareness and provide insights to the relevance of the FAL Convention to member Countries for domestication and effective implementation

Expected participants include UASC member states, relevant government agencies, ministries, multi-lateral and sub-regional organisations in the trade and transport sectors, public and private sector stakeholders in infrastructure development, ancillary services as well as donor agencies.
