SISSAF and DGLMT prepare for the launch of a Work Group on Land Transport Sector in Lebanon

A Working Group (WG) of major Land Transport Sector stakeholders will be convened in the context of the SISSAF project and with the coordination of the Directorate General of Land and Maritime Transport (DGLMT) at the Lebanese Ministry of Public Works and Transport (MPWT). The launch of the initiative is envisaged for July 2, 2015, at a half-day workshop organised by the SISSAF project in Radisson Blu Martinez Hotel in Beirut.

The WG will aim to support and promote the development of the Land Transport Sector in Lebanon. One of the specific tasks of the WG will be to actively contribute to the drafting and implementation of the Strategy Document for the Sector. In the context of the SISSAF project, the WG on Land Transport will form the basis of the Donors’ Co-ordination Group for the Transport Sector in Lebanon.

Mr. Abdel Hafiz Kaissi, Director General for Land and Maritime Transport at the Ministry of Public Works and Transport and Mr. Cyril Dewaleyne, Task Manager at the EU Delegation in Lebanon will both provide a welcome for the participants.

The progress that has been made so far in the Land Transport Sector will be presented by Mr Juan Sanz, the Team Leader of the SISSAF project. Mr. George Xanthakos, Land Transport Key Expert and Mr. Panagiotis Leventis, Land Transport Expert will give an overview of the Baseline and Priority Projects in the Land Transport component of the Project. The half-day workshop will conclude with roundtable discussions and recommendations for future actions in the sector.
