The first online training activity of the project named “Implementation and Fulfilment of International Maritime Agreements” was held by the Republic of Turkey Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure on 8-10 September 2021 under the framework of COMCEC Project Funding. The representatives of Tunisia, Lebanon, Turkey and COMCEC Coordination Office participated in the Training Program.
