The International Road Federation is pleased to join hands with the South African Department of Transport and the American Transportation Research Board (TRB) to support the 38th annual Southern African Transport Conference (SATC 2019) to be held from 8 to 11 July 2019 at the CSIR International Convention Centre in Pretoria, South Africa.
With the theme “Disruptive Transport Technologies – Is South and southern Africa ready?”, the conference will engage all stakeholders involved in the transport sector on how to provide optimal, effective and efficient transportation solutions to improve service delivery in order to better respond as a sector, to the needs of all users of our transport systems.
The conference provides a platform for national and international dialogue on transport as an enabler of socio-economic development. It also serves as a forum for discussion and information exchange on the implementation of transport policy, strategy and technology applications for all aspects and modes of transportation. Better cooperation between, and engagement of, all public and private sector stakeholders will be one of the key issues that will be debated and for which solutions will be sought and action plans formulated. A special session will be arranged to discuss and debate critical policy issues related to the theme of the conference.
Anyone connected to transport in any way is invited. This conference will be of particular interest to funding agencies, municipal, provincial and national government authorities, parastatals, policy- and decision makers, academics, researchers, students and professionals active in the planning, construction, manufacturing, logistics, operation and safety of passenger and freight transport, road traffic, rail, maritime and aviation. End-users will also find the conference of interest.
