AP Moller Terminals led by its Vice President Mr. Martijn Van Dongen has paid a courtesy visit to Nigerian Shippers' Council at its headquarters in Lagos today. 

Rakiya Dhikru-Yagboyaju, Head, Public Relations Unit of NSC who made this known in a statement issued to the press said the essence of the visit was to strengthen collaboration with Nigerian Shippers' Council, the port economic regulator, also to receive its certificate to operate as a regulated service provider.

Dhikru-Yagboyaju noted that the Legal Adviser and Head of Corporate Affairs of APMT, Chinenye Deinde, used the opportunity to call on NSC to pursue the National Transport Commission (NTC) Bill stating that it has the potential to sanitize the maritime sector. 

In his response, Executive Secretary and Chief Executive Officer of NSC, Right Honourable Emmanuel Jime, said that the Shippers’ Council is working on the review of its enabling Act which he believes will strengthen the agency in its role as port economic regulator. 

According to him, the Federal Government is committed to making Nigeria an investment haven for foreign investors while encouraging local entrepreneurs to be creative in growing the economy. 

"The strategic location of this country on the African continent makes it a trigger for investments", the NSC Executive Secretary and Chief Executive Officer concluded.
Mr. Dongen was accompanied on the visit by Mr. Klaus Holm Laursen, Head of Joint Ventures, Africa and Europe, Mrs. Chinenye Deinde, Legal Adviser & Head, Corporate Affairs, APMT as well as Mr. Frederick Klinke, MD, APMT Nigeria.
