Revolutionizing Africa's Transportation - Register Now for Infrastructure Conference

press release

Washington, DC — Transportation is vital to trade and commerce, and of course necessary to the movement of people who transact in goods and services. Transportation infrastructure—including roads, rail, bridges, and airports—is crucial to spur economic and social activity within individual countries and to support regional integration within Africa. In recent years, new developments in the technology sector have shaken-up the continent's transport industry.

Many innovations in the transport sector – from drones and apps to payment and tracking mechanisms – are becoming more widely available and are reducing the time and cost of transportation.

Panelists will discuss the innovative technologies that are positively "disrupting" the transportation space and highlight novel and well-tailored incentives for transportation project developers and investors across the continent.
