The EU funded EuroMed Transport Support Project, in cooperation with the Ministry of Public Works and Transport of Lebanon, organize a National Training Workshop on the UN Agreement on the International Carriage of Perishable Foodstuffs and on the Special Equipment to be Used for Such Carriage (ATP), in Beirut on 12 – 13 December 2017.

The workshop aims at presenting the objectives, main provisions and benefits of the ATP Agreement that establishes uniform prescriptions for the preservation of the quality of perishable foodstuffs during their international transport and highlight the importance of adherence to the ATP Agreement.

The EuroMed Transport Support Project (EuroMed TSP), to be implemented from 2017 to 2020, is an EU-funded project building on the results achieved in the course of the past five years (2012-2016) by its predecessor, the EuroMed Road, Rail and Urban Transport Project (Euromed RRU). Aimed at contributing in the creation of an integrated transport system in the Mediterranean, this demand-driven initiative will provide Technical Assistance (TA) to EuroMed Partner countries in support of the implementation of the Southern Mediterranean Regional Transport Action Plan (RTAP) 2014-2020.
