Selected subprojects specifically include: (i) a new container terminal at Casablanca; (ii) a coal handling facility at Jorf Lasfar; (iii) improved Ro-Ro facilities at Tangier; (iv) equipment for port security; and (v) technical assistance and training. MPW's program focuses entirely on rehabilitation of breakwaters and dredging. The Development Programs of the port provide a comprehensive time-bound framework for monitoring the key institutional development objectives with particular reference to: (a) quality and efficiency of port services; (b) trade facilitation; (c) investment planning; (d) environment and safety; and (e) finance.
