Sectoral approach to Arab integration

Numerous development projects are underway in the seaport sector in the ESCWA region, involving the building of new ports or the expansion and development of infrastructure, especially container terminals. Most ports of the region develop and modernize their operational methods by utilizing ICT systems in the operation of container terminals in particular as well as in other areas such as management and accounting. In this connection, it should be noted that by the end of 2007 ESCWA will publish a study currently underway entitled "Goal practices in information and communication technology -applications in seaports in ESCWA member States", with a view to acquainting ESCWA member countries with the latest ICT used in the ports of the region and worldwide. In addition, the study points out the uses, benefits and solutions that enhance operational efficiency and improve management.
