NEPAD Summit to speed up work on trans-Africa highways

highwayKey to success of regional integration  The inaugural NEPAD Transport Summit 2009 and Africa Expo -- the first of what is expected to be an annual event in Africa‚Äôs regional transport hubs -- will take place in Johannesburg on 25-26 November to promote regional integration across the continent through its transport networks.
The African Union has identified the regional integration of national economies through NEPAD -- the New Partnership for Africa's Development -- as the answer to the continent's chronic poverty, hunger and lack of growth. And the key to the NEPAD programme is swift, efficient and economic cross-border transport.

Decision-makers from African ministries of transport, trade, finance and communications, the African Union, NEPAD and Regional Economic Communities will meet at the Summit with senior executives in the private sector from major transport and logistics companies, international experts in transcontinental transport and representatives from development banks, world aid and donor-funding agencies.

They will discuss and seek ways to prioritise, speed up and integrate national action plans on transport involving road, rail and ports; and to increase awareness of the huge potential for trade, regional funding and foreign investment.

The main focus will be on Africa's key cross-border arteries and their importance in regional integration. These arteries include:

*The North-South corridor which links the port of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania to the Zambian Copper belt and the DRC, then runs through Zimbabwe and Botswana to Durban, with other corridor links to Namibia  and Mozambique. It also has connections to the Great Lakes in the north and Malawi in the east.
