Chittagong Port Authority to implement code of conduct
Nov '10
The Chittagong Port Authority (CPA), with a view to ensure easy delivery of shipments by the berth operators and to provide better service to importers and exporters, is developing a code of conduct for all its stakeholders.

The CPA has also shown its readiness to slash the port charges by 33 percent, if the Ministry of Shipping gives its consent.

The decisions came about in the recent meeting of the Chittagong Port Operations Monitoring Committee, which was presided over by the CPA Chairman commodore RU Ahmed. Joint Commissioner of Customs, a number of CPA board members, senior personnels, and several port users from various business forums like FBCCI spoke at the meeting.

Leaders of trade bodies present at the meeting welcomed the CPA's decision of developing the code of conduct and labeled it as a "milestone in the history of the Chittagong Port".

Meanwhile, a few of those present at the meeting also asserted that, excessive delay in delivery of consignments to garment exporters greatly impedes the manufacturing activities in factories.

Also, as the berth operators are not interested in employing the necessary number of people in the jetties, the readymade garment exporters have to face a lot of troubles as the process of unloading the consignments from vessels takes too long.
