Egyptian Transport Min. urges Arab transport integration.
CAIRO, April 27 (KUNA) -- It is imperative to have full Arab cohesion in the transport sector in order to overcome "unprecedented political and economic challenges," Egyptian Minister of Transport Jalal Saeed said on Wednesday. Saeed made the comments in a speech at the 56th Executive Office meeting of Arab Transport Ministers, with participation of delegations from eight Arab nations, including Kuwait. The Arab transport sector is facing challenges no less significant than political and economic ones, "which call for complete vigilance," Saeed noted. The Egyptian Minister of Transport also urged Arab nations to strengthen land, maritime and aerial links to bolster their collective economies. Moreover, Director General of the Transportation and Tourism Department of the Arab League (AL) Dina Al-Thaher said that the meeting, which lasts for two days, will tackle plans to initiate national centers for transport and logistics in Arab nations. The Arab transport ministers are also due to discuss a number of issues pertinent to aerial transport in Arab nations, Al-Thaher added. Kuwait's delegation, headed by Assistant Undersecretary of the Ministry of Communications Sulaiman Al-Bader, included Director General of Maritime Transport at the Ministry of Communications Jamal Al-Ahmadi and superintendent of the transport sector Jamal Al-Kandari.
