In response to the increased global demand for African commodities such as coal, iron ore and oil and gas, ports and terminals across Africa are fast-tracking port expansion and human resource development.
Billions of dollars are currently being spent on port development projects to boost throughput and to take advantage of this increased trade. The ability of the maritime sector to deliver world class services, facilities and efficiencies has become paramount to increasing trade across the African continent.
Maritime chief executives, director generals, ports directors and port engineers from South Africa are joining their colleagues from across Africa in Durban this September to join the debate about stimulating Africa’s economic growth through increased investment into ports infrastructure. African Ports Evolution 2014 provides maritime stakeholders, bulk exporters, investors and logistics experts active on the continent with up to date information and future-proofed solutions for boosting the integrity of port operations, modernising facilities, and increasing bulk and container throughput.
