Efficient transport links are essential for the smooth flow of goods and people, for regional integration, and to expand trade. Whether done on an ownership or concession basis, efficient transport infrastructure and services result in reduced costs, enhanced inventory management, fewer crop losses and increased labor productivity. Well-functioning airports and ports can be the anchors that help economic sectors including tourism, manufacturing and commodity exports.
In addition to providing safe and reliable transportation for people, efficient transport infrastructure is essential for competing. The ability to trade on a local, regional and global scale, especially in critical commodities, provides:
Countries with critical advantages for economic growth
Companies with sources of income and growth opportunities, leading to more jobs
People with access to goods that are necessary for their lives and livelihood.
