Summit 2018 Ghana
The African Belt & Road is an initiative of the Innohabitat group, it encompasses the Trans African Railway from Mombasa (Kenya) through to Lagos (Nigeria) with spurs to Angola and Ghana. In the interim, the missing links along the route is serviced by Roadrail off-road road train haulage and can spur to service countries that are not on the route. Roadrail also provides contract haulage solutions for the mining industry. Furthermore the African Belt & Road also incorporates Searail which is a High Speed Passenger & Cargo Ferry service from Nigeria to Senegal.
Searail and Roadrail is welcoming neighbouring counties in ECOWAS to participate in and leverage off the significant economic benefits that Searail and Roadrail will bring to the region.
Searail and Roadrail has scheduled programs to be held at the West Africa Energy, Mining & Investment Summit 2018 at Accra, Ghana on 21-23 February 2018. http://www.abvig.com/index.php/2018-summit

To allow countries to be informed so they can prepare and take full advantage of the significant trading benefits this service will bring the constituents.
