an Intergovernmental Agreement on Dry Ports

20-22 June 2012
UNCC, Conference Room 3, Bangkok

 

The Commission in its resolution 66/4 of 19 May 2010 requested the secretariat to work towards the development of intergovernmental agreement on dry ports. A working draft of such an agreement was prepared by the secretariat in consultation with the Treaty Section of the Office of Legal Affairs at United Nations Headquarters in New York on the basis of the outcome of the Regional Expert Group Meeting on the Development of Dry Ports along the Asian Highway and Trans-Asian Railway Networks and the second session of the Committee on Transport, which were both held in Bangkok from 1 to 3 November 2010.

The working draft of the agreement was extensively discussed and reviewed during three subregional meetings, for South-East Asia, South and South-West Asia and Central and North-East Asia, in 2011. The secretariat revised the draft agreement, incorporated the suggestions and recommendations of the three subregional meetings as well as comments and advice received from the Office of Legal Affairs.

ESCAP secretariat organized an Ad hoc Intergovernmental Meeting on an Intergovernmental Agreement on Dry Ports. The objective of the meeting was to consider and adopt an intergovernmental agreement on dry ports.
