0By Sharon KavhuWindhoek - South Africa’s transport minister Blade Nzimande has commended strides made through the Trans Kalahari Corridor (TKC) since its inception in 2003. Nzimande, the new chairperson of the regional corridor group said the TKC has been growing rapidly with practical economic development achieved along the corridor. “This corridor plays a pivotal role in the economic development of all our member states and our region, particularly in anchoring the development of industries and business along the corridor,” Nzimande during the TKC chairmanship reception. The key challenges hindering growth and trade within the SADC region include, among others, poor infrastructures, low density across transport networks, inefficient border processes and fragmented. This corridor is known for providing a short transport link across the entire breadth of the South African sub-continent.
