8TH ANNUAL AFRICAN PORTS AND RAIL EVOLUTION FORUM: DEVELOPING AFRICA’S TRADE AND TRANSPORT HUB POTENTIAL
National development plans across the continent are prioritising transport infrastructure upgrade and development projects. Substantial growth in trade volumes is predicted with total corridor volumes on road and rail expected to increase from 13.6 million tonnes by 2020 to 40 million tonnes by 2040.
Against this backdrop, Africa’s largest transport event, African Ports and Rail Evolution, welcomes dozens of African ports and rail authorities and thousands of qualified maritime, transport and logistics professionals to optimise hinterland and maritime connectivity, improve efficiency of rail networks and define the future of maritime and overland shipping across the continent. Efficient and effective transport systems and modern ports and railways are key to unlocking new trade opportunities and export markets.
- Discover Africa’s trade potential and wealth of new investment and partnership opportunities arising out of Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement and other open border initiatives
- Find out which infrastructure projects are currently open, where assistance is needed and how to become a leading partner in development for Africa’s multibillion dollar transport industry
- Meet with development leaders from Ports Management Association of Eastern and Southern Africa (PMAESA), South Africa’s Department of Transport, Transnet Group and other industry stakeholders.
The 8th annual African Ports and Rail Evolution takes place in Durban, South Africa from 15 to 16 October 2019.
