Officials from various government entities in the Philippines have received training in how to develop a National Maritime Transport Policy (NMPT).

The concept is being promoted by International Maritime Organization (IMO) as a good governance practice to guide planning, decision making and legislation in the maritime sector, and as a key driver for a country's sustainable development.
The event took place in Manila, Philippines (6-8 March), organised by IMO together with the Philippines Maritime Industry Authority (MARINA) and the World Maritime University (WMU).
The training comes at an opportune moment - with the Philippines in the process of adopting its Maritime Industry Development Plan (MIDP) 2018-2028 - designed to enhance the country's maritime industry.
Forty-five officials took part in the Manila event, which was run by IMO's Josephine Uranza and WMU's Professor Neil Bellefontaine and Associate Professor Henning Jessen.
