HeadlinesPorts Management Shippers Council to unveil new agenda on port efficiency By maritimemag November 4, 2021 ShareTweet 0 Ayobami Adedinni The Executive Secretary, Nigerian Shippers Council (NSC), Emmanuel Jime, has said that it will soon unveil a new agenda that will improve efficiency and regional competitiveness at the nation’s seaports. He said that the Council places emphasis on ensuring clarity as far as its regulatory framework and procedures for discharging them were concerned, adding that the whole idea was to achieve positive impact on the ports and the national economy. In his words, “The agenda will be in tandem with the mandate of the Shippers’ Council as the Ports Economic regulator. “There is a need for some clarity in the regulatory framework that we have and in the processes that must be embarked upon in this maritime domain. “My understanding is that once there is clarity and once there are rules and everybody is playing by them , then we can all achieve our goals whatever those goals may be particularly when they are rules that can positively impact on the businesses being done in the maritime sector. “Ours is a regulator that is unbiased and not showing any particular interest to any stakeholder but an interest that recognises the fact that the environment in which businesses are being done is one that everybody recognizes as being clear. if there is clarity almost everything else will fall in place. So, this is what we plan to do”, he added. © 2021, maritimemag. All rights reserved.
