The Executive Secretary and Chief Executive Officer of Nigerian Shippers’ Council, Mr. Hassan Bello, has reiterated the importance of the status of convention on Facilitation of International Maritime Traffic (FAL Convention) to the Union of African Shippers Council (UASC) members.
He stressed that the NSC would ensure that the convention is enforced.
Bello stated this at the UASC Sub-regional Summit on Unfair Shipping Surcharges at the Ports of West and Central Africa Sub-region in Abuja.
He added that the sub-region must not lag behind in making our port users friendly and attractive to international trade.
The domestication and implementation of FAL Convention, a remedial instrument armed at facilitating maritime traffic in the member states, would prevent unnecessary delay in maritime traffic.
