From the 23rd to the 26th of February, 1777, the third Ministerial Conference of West and Central African States on Maritime Transport CMINCONMAR), was held in Accra, Ghana. At the end of this meeting, a convention institutionalizing the conference was adopted. Based on the charter of Abidjan which was established on the sixth of May, 1975, the members agreed among other objectives: - To harmonise and coordinate their policies on matters concerning maritime transport and, — To promote the development of appropriate machinery and bodies for the improvement of maritime transport.
