NTU co-hosts international transport conference in Jordan

On April 6-7 2010 NTU co-hosted the 7th National Counterpart Teams Meeting in Jordan as part of our Regional Transport Action Plan for the Mediterranean. The opening speeches were given by H.E. Mr Mohammed Qudah, General Secretary of the Jordanian Ministry of Transport, and Mr Patrick Renauld, Head of the EC Delegation to Jordan. The Ministries of Transport from the partner countries were represented by high-level transport specialists and political coordinators, and the meeting was also attended by the EC project coordinators and representatives of the Maghreb Aran Union. NTU's experts planned and organised the meeting and presented the progress of the multi-donor investment scheme for the Middle Eastern transport sector, and they participated in the lively and positive debate on the opportunities of transport investments to be explored. Further meetings will help clarify the investment landscape for the partner countries, and NTU will play a key role in defining and exploring innovative financing sources for the benefit of the partner countries.
