Worldwide there are approximately 3,000 merchant ports and the work of the Harbour Master can vary widely from country to country and from port to port even within the same country.
The Moroccan Port Officers' Association (ACOPM), which includes all the Harbour Masters and Port Officers of Morocco, has objectives to promote the profession of Port Officer and participate in the development of Moroccan ports by being a force for proposals and synergies between the different port stakeholders.
In addition to other activities, every two years the ACOPM organizes its important event "National Harbour Master Office Day " (JONACA) in partnership with Moroccan Port Authorities.
The 4th edition of this event "JONACA 4" will be held on Thursday, April 5, 2018 in Tangier and will be an excellent opportunity for port authorities and various Maritime and Port stakeholders from Morocco and other European and African countries to meet.
Please find below information about this event:

In one year the new Stockholm Norvik Port will open. This was reported in a statement from Hutchison Ports (UK) Limited at the end of April. At the time the Hong Kong Chamber of Commerce in Sweden had arranged a seminar (illustrated) in the heart of Stockholm together with The Ports of Stockholm and Hutchison Ports in order to highlight the benefits the new port will deliver for Swedish businesses.
Shipping in the Stockholm region is to undergo big changes in the near future future. The Ports of Stockholm are building a new port – Stockholm Norvik Port – that will open in May 2020. This will be a deep water port, a game changer in the Baltic Sea area. The container business will be operated by Hutchison Ports, it is understood.
In the words of Torborg Chetkovich, Chairperson Hong Kong Chamber of Commerce in Sweden: ‘The cooperation between Hutchison Ports and Ports of Stockholm is an excellent example of how to create value for its customers, employees and the society at large. The Chamber´s role is to promote business between Hong Kong and Sweden. A seminar like this is an example of how we want to promote successful cooperation between Hong Kong and Sweden.’
A new IMO video puts the spotlight on how an IMO/EU initiative is helping cut maritime emissions in the Solomon Islands as part of a global project to help tackle climate change.
The illustration published here shows the new solar-powered LED lights erected in the port of Honiara, Solomon Islands. Their operation helps the port meet IMO maritime security requirements.
These lights are also an ideal example of how a global project, through regional centres, can help individual countries’ ports and shipping sectors improve energy efficiency, cut emissions and clean up local air quality. This was the approach outlined in a media briefing issued by IMO on 15 May.
