The Crucial Role Of Rail In Job Creation And Reshoring Manufacturing In Africa
In order to create jobs, one has to achieve a competitive environment, part of the formula for this competitive environment is intermodal rail. So why is sub-equatorial Africa not getting this right? The world has changed drastically in so many ways, in term of globalisation and international competition – and we are handicapped by a “legacy thought process” and we need to get out of the box, and “leap frog” is the new order of the day!
Franco Eleuteri, takes us through a few concepts in terms of intermodal rail as part of a new model that will create a win-win solution for government and the private sector. And, how this related to competitiveness, job creation and reshoring manufacturing.
While demand is currently down, and this obviously translates in lower volumes, it presents the perfect opportunity to drive rail and its fundamental role in seeing Africa as a whole proposer.
