We envision a West Africa where a truck can move goods across the region quickly, efficiently and cheaply, whether from Abidjan to Lagos or from Cotonou to Timbuktu. More efficient transport means more trade – and in turn, this means stronger economic growth, higher profits for companies, greater income for national governments, increased investment and more jobs.
We aim to increase trade across the region, by working towards the elimination of all non-tariff barriers to trade.
We bring together stakeholders from the private sector to leverage resources and address critical issues affecting transport and trade in West Africa. We create platforms for direct dialogue between private and public sector stakeholders, while working with partners to ensure that credible data on the true state of intra-regional trade is regularly collected and disseminated.
