    Experts from 21 African countries gathered in Addis Ababa on Thursday (October 10) for a six-day conference exchanging ideas and discussing latest trends in maritime transport and container traffic.

    An important task of the conference will be to draw up the African position as regards an international meeting on transport dus in Geneva next month.
