  • 5. The world and the African market
    • 20.4% of the total land area
    • 14% of the world population
    • Half of the worlds landlocked countries
    • More than 50 countries and several regional organizations
    • Not homogenous
    • (development levels, opportunities etc)
  • 6. African Oil Production ©Transportutvikling AS – May 2007 Above 1 mill. Bbl/day 0,5 to 1 mill bbl/day >0 to 0,5 mill. Bbl/day Oil production No oil production ANGOLA ALGERIA BENIN BOTSWANA BUKINA FASO CAMEROON CENTRAL AF. REPUBL. CHAD R.O. CONGO D.R.CONGO EGYPT ETHIOPIA GABON GAMBIA COTE D’IVOIRE DJIBOUTI EQUATORIAL GUINEA GHANA GUINEA GUINEA-BISSAU KENYA LESHOTO LIBERIA LIBYA NAMIBIA MOZAMBIQUE NIGER MADAGASCAR NIGERIA SIERRA LEONE MOROCCO MALAWI MALI MAURITANIA SOMALIA SOUTH AFRICA SUDAN RWANDA SAO TOME AND PRINCIPE SENEGAL SWAZILAND TANZANIA TOGO TUNISIA UGANDA ZAMBIA ZIMBABWE BURUNDI ERITHREA

      • Libya (16,8%)
      • Angola (11,1%)
      • Egypt (7,5%)
  • 7. Problem & Challenges
    • Missing links or connectivity
    • Poor trade partnership
    • Lack of integration with Ports
    • Lack of funds in financing
    • Poor infrastructure and Rolling stock
    • Lack of human development
  • 8.
    • Connectivity to the port
    • Traffic Congestion
    • Infrastructure development
    • Investment and funding required
    Rail / Port Issues
  • 9. Transportation issues – improve interconnections Simplified illustration: Lack of inter- Connections Source: Transportutvikling AS, 2007
  • 10. Intraregional trade
    • The African Intra regional trade is growing, but low
      • Africa: 10%
      • North America: 40%
      • Western Europe: 68%
    • Intra-African trade is an opportunity, because increased trade between countries creates a demand for better roads and railways and provides the wealth to build and maintain them.
  • 11. The world and the African market
  • 12. Growing African trade
  • 13. Energy
    • Energy prices has a strong impact on transportation costs
    • Energy prices does also have a strong impact on the countries economic conditions and their capability to invest and improve the railways
  • 14. Proposed Solution
  • 15.

  • 21. Elements of Vision
  • 22.
    • A vision document is not a plan.
    • There are always different views (how to organize, how to present, methods, understanding of the same issues etc)
    • Common structure for all global regions
    • The intention is to start up a positive process
    VISION DOCUMENTS & REGIONAL PLANS
  • 23. Elements of an Africa 2025 Rail Vision: ‘More Rail for Africa’ Market Adaptation Skills Development Policy Frameworks Private sector participation Modal Co-operation Operational Efficiency Regional Inter- connectivity Investment Vision 2025
  • 24. Transit corridors can be important, not only for transit Developing the hinterland
  • 25. What is required for Future
  • 26. What is expected from African Railways
    • The vision is ours
    • Support the UIC-Africa
    • Collaboration with other rail partners e.g.
    • Suppers, Customers
    • Provide information and expertise when
    • required
    • Alignment with other rail organisation
  • 27. Execution and Implementation Strategy
    • Vision 2025 has been adopted by UAR
    • and will be presented to AU
    • Define jointly Terms of Reference:
    • Help in Research and Experts UIC-HQ
    • Create Regional groups to execute the tasks.
    • Communicate with stakeholders
  • 28. In Africa- Rail is a strategic resource
    • Provides time and place utility
    • Lever for competitiveness
    • Lever for economic growth & development
    • Lever to connect industrial heartlands to global trade
    • Rail is the transport
    • backbone
    USE IT WELL
    • Freight cost as a % of total import value :
      • 8.8% for developing countries,
      • 5.2% for industrial countries (UNCTAD 2002)
    • At a sub-regional level
      • West Africa: 14%
      • East & Southern Africa: 15.2%
      • North Africa: 11%
  • 29. Global Customer Requirements for Rail
    • Heightened pressure for world-class competitiveness
    • Efficient rail is a competitive advantage for customers to get product to market – 5 “R’s” of Rail:
      • Right Place
      • Right Time
      • Right Quantity
      • Right Cost
      • Right Condition
    Rail is an integral part of the total supply chain rail operators in Africa must think outside the ‘rail’ box
  • 30. The future - freight
    • There is a connection between economic growth and transportation
    • GDP projections for Africa (2025) are, by most analysts, positive. The projected GDP growth creates opportunities which are possible to capture. There are also positive developments prospects among the railways and many companies projects stable growth in their freight volumes.
