Editorial
UNCTAD’s2009 issue of the annual Review of Maritime Transport (RMT) is available online. Including unique data such as seaborne trade statistics, the world fleet by vessel types and port traffic, this year’s issue analyses in detail the contrasting trends of reduced trade and thus demand for maritime transport services against the still-growing world fleet. The RMT 2009 regional chapter looks atinternational transport developments in Africa (page 5). UNCTAD hosted and organized two topical expert meetings in early December. The Multiyear Expert Meeting on Transport and Trade Facilitation focused on Public and Private Partnerships for the Development of Infrastructure to Facilitate Trade and Transport (page 6), and the Ad Hoc Expert Meeting looked at Transit Ports Servicing Landlocked DevelopingCountries (page 7). Both meetings were well attended and led to insightful and interesting discussions; presentations are available online. Topical articles in this issue of the Transport Newsletter cover an International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA) “train the trainer” course (page 8), designing and implementing trade facilitation in Asia and the Pacific (page 10), theThird Meeting of Trade Ministers of Landlocked Developing Countries (page 11) and an update on UNCTAD’s Port Training Programme (PTP) (page 12). Further, we provide summary updates on selected documents and events dealing with trade and transport facilitation. Please also note two vacancies in UNCTAD’s Trade Logistics Branch (page 17) and mark your agenda on 15–16 February 2010 for the event“Engaging the Trading Community: Forum on WTO, Trade Facilitation and the Private Sector in Developing Countries” (page 19). Feedback, comments and suggestions for our next Transport Newsletter are welcome until March 2010. Please contact jan.hoffmann@unctad.org.
