ACS and DP World to Deliver Maritime Course to Greater Caribbean Professionals

The Association of Caribbean States (ACS) and DP World Academy, the training center launched last year by DP World's operation in the Dominican Republic, will jointly deliver the second course on Maritime Port Upgrade for Executives of the Greater Caribbean.

The two-session course will take place on March 23rd and 31st, 2021, and targets port management staff, logistics operators and policy makers from throughout the Greater Caribbean.

The course is being convened under the theme “Looking towards the Future of Ports in the Caribbean”  which supports the region’s adaptation and transformation of maritime and port management to the coronavirus’ impact and the dire need in the Greater Caribbean to refocus and modernize operations to become more sustainable and resilient.

The course will feature industry leaders in maritime logistics, ICT, finance and security   from world renowned organizations and will build capacity in topics such as maritime cybersecurity, digitalization and automation, port operations and management, and maritime technology. These key areas are crucial to finding opportunities and solutions needed for formulating strategies and planning which, in turn, will allow ports in the region to become more efficient and competitive on the heels of the post-pandemic era.
