The Regional Economic Communities Transport Coordination Committee (REC TCC) facilitated by the Sub-Saharan Africa Transport Policy Program (SSATP) is the forum providing the Africa regional integration and trade facilitation community the opportunity to review progress on their respective programs, exchange experience and coordinate their activities.
Last year in Nairobi, the REC-TCC articulated a priority work program under the newly launched Third Development Plan (DP3), covering notably the following activities:
- Support to the development of Tripartite Roads Standards
- Support to Tripartite Corridor Management Institutions
- Port Performance Indicators
- Guidelines on Container Terminal Concession
- Support to the West Africa Monetary Zone countries
With the SSATP AGM taking place in February 2017, now is the right time to review progress on the work program, decide on follow-up activities, and explore opportunities to broaden the scope of the work program. That will be the primary objective of the present REC TCC meeting.
In line with the decision to jointly organize REC TCC meetings with a partner organization from the REC TCC, the November meeting will be jointly organized with the African Corridor Management Alliance (ACMA) which will hold its inaugural meeting immediately prior to the REC TCC, on November 21, 2016.
The African Development Bank will be hosting the PIDA Week that same week, and the agenda of the REC TCC will be organized so as to enable participants to attend the relevant sessions of the PIDA Week.
