New port

Nauru port workers to be trained as construction begins on new port

But a new port needs workers who know how to operate it.

And that training—in key areas such as maritime safety, stevedoring, and equipment maintenance—has already begun.

The Asian Development Bank is funding the training of the port’s 60 workers over the next 10 months in preparation for the port’s opening in 2021.

The workers are being schooled in maritime safety, stevedoring, equipment handling and maintenance, accounting, finance, and human resources.
