Transport Minister Endorses Trans Africa

Transport Minister, Honourable Dipuo Peters, officially announced the Ministry's support for the Trans Africa Exhibition and Conference.

Transport is the heartbeat of Southern Africa's economic growth and development. Given the emphasis that the Government of South Africa has placed on how South Africa must integrate within the region and the Continent to expand trade opportunities, the Trans Africa event presents the ideal platform to bring together public and private sector business with government to discuss investment opportunities within the transport and infrastructure sector.

The theme for the 2014 Trans Africa conference programme is “Exchanging Knowledge between Policy & Practice”.

The conference programme offers more content with a greater range of sessions over three days from Tuesday 7 until Thursday 9 October. The programme will include high impact early morning and plenary sessions focused on industry trends and forecasts followed by panel discussions encompassing all transport modalities including road, rail, sea and air transport.
