Implementation of the Sub-Saharan Africa Transport Policy Program (SSATP) Long Term Development Plan (LTDP) accelerated in 2005. Work program activities of the LTDP intensified and started to deliver results. The program's principal objective and main focus remained that of anchoring transport in poverty reduction strategies. The year also saw increased involvement of high level policy makers in the policy development process. At the level of the African Union, the Ministers of Transport adopted transport targets and indicators for achieving the MDG. The Ministerial Forum convened during the 2005 SSATP Annual Meeting resolved, inter alia, to move ahead with the recommendations of the poverty reduction-transport strategy reviews, and other key aspects necessary to accelerate implementation of the LTDP.
