The inaugural Southern African Transportation Infrastructure Summit will explore the exciting landscape of transportation projects currently being proposed in Southern Africa. The SADC region is seeking to improve its economic and social integration by rehabilitating existing road and rail networks and implementing new transportation corridors.

The importance of facilitating trade between the Southern African countries has been placed at the top of governmental agendas, with a key focus on improving accessibility to ports and airports, repairing outdated road and rail infrastructure and laying new track and asphalt for future growth.

Hear from key government officials and project owners who will be seeking financiers, consultants, OEMs and solution providers for their transportation infrastructure. Attendees will also learn from the experiences of regional experts and their approaches to local transportation projects, including best practice in urban planning, effective asset management, implementing sustainability in key projects, and addressing the challenges which are unique to Southern Africa’s infrastructure environment.

Come and network with transportation experts and major industry players from government ministries, municipalities, contractors, consultancies and solution providers from the Southern Arican community, including:
