April 25, 2017
Is Paid ? : No
Synopsis - The Department of the Management of the Faculty of Business in collaboration with Trans-Kalahari Corridor (TKC) Secretariat based in Windhoek, Namibia will host a public lecture to share opportunities presented by the Trans-Kalahari Corridor.
The Trans Kalahari Corridor (TKC) is a tripartite trans-boundary Corridor Management Institution that was established with a political and economic vision to pursue or contribute towards deeper regional integration programs of SADC, SACU and indeed NEPAD. It is a road network spanning across the territories of South Africa Botswana, and Namibia right through to the Port of Walvis Bay.”
The Trans Kalahari Corridor Secretariat is strategically linked to other corridors in the sub-region, namely: Trans Kunene Corridor, Walvis Bay-Ndola-Lubumbashi (Trans Caprivi) Corridor, Windhoek-Luanda Corridor and Trans Oranje Corridor through the Port of Walvis Bay and Maputo Corridor, resulting in the Coast-to-Coast Corridor.
It is anticipated that the TKC, together with other corridors in the region, will facilitate integration of movement bringing efficiencies especially in cross-border movements. To that effect there are a number of developmental projects along the corridor including the much-anticipated Trans Kalahari Rail line.
Presenters - The lecture will take the form of a roundtable discussion to explore opportunities along the TKC with presenters coming from its Secretariat, NAMPORT, Walvis Bay Port, and BURS.
