  • Description

    A permanent pan-African transport co-ordinating council is to be formed, it was announced at the end of a four-day meeting of transport ministers in the capital of Chad, N'djamena.

    SYNOPSIS: The eight countries to be involved in the new Council are Cameroun, Chad, the Congo, Gabon, Zaire, Equatorial Guinea, Ruanda, and the Central African Empire -- formerly the Central African Republic. Chad's Transport Minister, Kerim Togoi, presided over the conference.

    The countries involved have held several ministerial-level transport conferences in the past. The new Council will, in effect, be the permanent establishment of current ties.

    The council will begin work when the articles of its establishment are formerly signed by a minimum of five of the member states. Apart from a permanent secretariat, the council will include specialised committees working on various aspects of transport, divided into air, road, sea and rail travel. Initially, three full-time executive appointments are planned -- a permanent secretary, an administrative director, and a treasurer.
