Modernising African ports and increasing cargo and freight capacity by 30% to handle more traffic
Africa is experiencing a major surge in trade with growing volumes of cargo across its ports. To keep up with the increase, government authorities across the continent are investing millions to increase its capacity.
With port development in Africa projected to grow strongly to meet this demand, new projects are being announced creating exceptional maritime business opportunities as ports strive to deliver world class service, facilities and efficiencies.
As such, the 3rd Edition of the African Ports Expansion Summit will congregate major stakeholders in the maritime industry including government authorities, port authorities, contractors, technology providers, suppliers of port equipment, consultants, along with transportation authorities and more as they discuss their biggest challenges and debate best-practice methodologies from 25-27 June 2019 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
