Transport and communications are a sector that African States have always considered important for their economic development and the social progress of their people, in general, and for industrial development, trade promotion and for concretely achieving the socio-economic integration of the continent, in particular. The programme of the Second Decade seeks to establish an efficient integrated transport and communications system as a basis for the physical integration of Africa and to facilitate national and international traffic so as to foster trade and the achievement of self-sustaining economic development as called for in African regional and sub-regional economic restructuring and development programmes, in particular, the Lagos Plan of Action.
