PMAESA Secretariat

The Permanent Secretariat is located in the coastal city of Mombasa in Kenya since its inception in 1973.

The core objective of the Secretariat is to build consensus on key issues so it can be the "voice of the region" and promote the economic, social and environmental well being of the ports in the Eastern and Southern African region.

It consists of the Secretary General and the staff recruited by the PMAESA Council.

The Secretariat handles among other issues:

  • Co-ordination of on-going projects and programmes
  • Publication, distribution and dissemination of Our Ports quarterly magazine which is the Official PMAESA hard-copy publication and The e-PMAESA monthly newsletter - which is published electronically
  • Collection and dissemination of Member Port statistics and Port Performance Indicators
  • Maintenance of the PMAESA website
