Transport minister endorses the Trans Africa Expo

Transport Minister, Honourable Dipuo Peters  has official stated that it supports the Tran African Exhibition and Conference that will take place from 7 to 9 October  2014 at the Johannesburg Expo centre, Nasrec.

The endorsement states that "Transport is the heartbeat of South Africa’s economic growth and social development!" and given the emphasis that the Government of South Africa has placed on integration with in the region, and continent, trade opportunities need to be expanded therefore the Trans Africa Expo event presents an ideal platform to bring together public and private sector business with government to discuss investment opportunities within the transport and infrastructure sector.

Furthermore the Department of Transport noted that it looked forward to partnering up in the joint initiative, and that the 2014 vision to place public transport investments as key, and  investments in road, rail, maritime, aviation, infrastructure and the transport sector  would be brought to the forefront through participation.

The Department of Transport welcomed the event that will also fall at the start of transport month and will be an opportunity to bring together key stakeholders and decision makers from within the transport sector.

The combination of a conference and exhibition provides a hands-on opportunity to translate discussions into action with a view to the implementation of transport infrastructure projects.
