The 13th ministerial commission session for infrastructure of the Arab Maghreb Union (AMU) ended in the Mauritanian capital, Nouakchott, on Saturday with a call on member countries to accelerate the integration of their road transport sectors.
Participants at the end of their two-day meeting also called for the adoption of a framework aimed at liberalizing air transport.
During the meeting, the Maghreb ministerial commission outlined a number of priorities in the transport sector through the development of infrastructure for air, land and maritime transport and the adoption of an appropriate judicial framework for the development and integration of the sub-region.
It adopted a document which focused on the unification of training and examination for the issue of driving licence in Maghreb countries, agreements related to the movement of people and goods, the entry through land borders and transport by land of dangerous products.
Set up in 1989, AMU brings together Algeria, Libya, Morocco, Mauritania and Tunisia.
