The Southern African Transport Conference (SATC) is the longest running transport conference in the region. Besides the presentation of research and technology transfer papers, capacity building in the form of courses is also an important focus. The SATC has always served as a forum to debate current transport-related issues. In the past sessions were included to debate provincial and municipal transport issues, such as "Transport infrastructure provision," "Establishment of transport authorities" and "Transport performance indicators." It attracts about 700 delegates each year. Everyone in any way connected with transport is invited but it will be of particular interest to funding agencies, municipal, provincial and national government, parastatals, policy- and decision-makers, academics, researchers, students and professionals active in the planning, construction, manufacturing, logistics, operation and safety of passenger and freight transport, road traffic, rail, maritime and aviation.
The SATC aims:
- To provide a platform for national and international dialogue on transport as a socio-economic development priority
- To serve as a forum for discussion and information exchange on the implementation of transport policy, strategy and technology applications for all aspects and modes of transportation
- To foster better cooperation between and engagement of all public and private sector stakeholders so that solutions can be sought and action plans formulated
