International Expert Meeting on Reduction of Transport Costs for Commodities in Africa

This fast track project seeks to organise an international expert meeting in Nigeria as a platform for discussing the issue of the high costs of transportation of export commodities originating from Africa. Given that the landing costs of export commodities originating from Africa are much higher than landing costs of commodities originating from other parts of the world, it is likely that this may be a contributory factor to the lack of competitiveness of African export commodities in international markets. The expert meeting will provide opportunities for stakeholders in the transportation sector to exchange ideas about resolving the issues involved and to determine potentially workable solutions to the problem of high transportation costs.
