The Ndola-Lumbumbashi-Walvis Bay corridor faces obstacles; Tayali
Despite several attempts to address them by the member states, the Walvis Bay-Ndola-Lubumbashi corridor continues to encounter numerous obstacles in terms of trade and transportation, according to Transport and Logistics Minister FRANK TAYALI.
According to Mr. TAYALI, new issues have arisen that require attention since the Tripartite and Council of Ministers conference on the Walvis Bay-Ndola-Lubumbashi development corridor in the Democratic Republic of the Congo-DRC last year.
He was addressing the Walvis Bay-Ndola-Lumbumbashi Development Corridor meeting of the DRC, Namibia, and Zambia at the Tripartite Council of Ministers of Transport in Livingstone.
JOHN MUTORWA, the minister of works and transport for Namibia, urged for the execution of this year’s resolutions in his remarks at the same gathering.
Also, the DRC’s head of delegation, Roger Te-Biasu, declared that his nation is dedicated to ensuring that all obstacles are removed and that interstate harmony is improved.
The new container terminal in the port of Walvis Bay is enabling additional options for containerized freight to transit through Namibia, according to HIPPY TJIVIKUA, chief executive officer of the Walvis Bay Group.
