The 3rd East & Central Africa Roads & Rail Infrastructure Summit 2012 is the premier event focusing on Eastern and Central Africa's transportation infrastructure requirements, delivering strategic recommendations and solutions to meet the needs of the region's short-term and long-term growth.
Efficient transportation corridors are keys to economic development, and thus rehabilitation projects and new infrastructure investments are needed to keep the region prospering. This 3rd Summit addresses the weak transport infrastructure in East & Central Africa and focuses on the key factors in ensuring a functioning road network, including road planning, design, operation and optimization of rail assets, and regional connectivity. Hear about the latest investment projects from Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Zambia, Kenya, Uganda, and other countries in region.
New funding is being released to rehabilitate and improve current transportation networks. Find out what other projects are in the pipeline for the major transport corridors in East Africa. The major transport corridors are the Central Corridor (Tanzania to DRC), Northern Corridor (Kenya to DRC/Sudan), the North-South Corridor (Egypt to South Africa), TAZARA Corridor (the combination of roads, railways and pipeline) and the corridors in the Horn of Africa (Addis-Djibouti, Kenya-Ethiopia, Kenya-Sudan & Uganda-Sudan). The development of transport corridors is a top priority in East Africa.
Large infrastructure investments are expected to be in the form of Public Private Partnerships. Private Sector Investors need to understand the requirements of partnership agreements in order to participate effectively in them.
