AFRICA: Transit needs more than infrastructure boost
Oxford Analytica Daily Brief (2008)
  • Alberto Behar, University of Oxford
Many organisations are making money and skills available for transport infratsructure projects. Indications are that material improvements are taking place. Yet infratsructure is only one aspect of the supply chain: customs clearance times at borders are a major constraint, as are impromptu road side stoppages. The temptation to extract rents from landlocked neighbours may persist. However, ventures which were previously unviable due to costly, lengthy and unpredictable delays are worth reconsidering.
