SOUTHERN AFRICA RAILWAY SYSTEM
Railnet is also in the development and planning stages of a railway system that will interconnect several SADC (Southern Africa Development Community) nations including Angola, Democratic Republic of Congo, Namibia and others.
The Southern Africa Rail System will create thousands of jobs and significantly increase the GDP and other economic status of each country it passes through. It will greatly facilitate inter-regional trade or trading not among the west African countries only, but to the entire world. In addition to the railway system other infrastructure systems will also be implemented or improved.
Because of trade facilitation the proposed rail system will create jobs, stimulate economic growth, and economic development at a rate the region has never experienced.
The proposed rail system will allow the increase in industries in all segments including mining, agriculture, manufacturing, and more. Thousands of jobs starting with entry level positions to skilled labor positions, will be created. This major industrialization will have an effect on the region that has never before been possible.
The system will enable goods to be transported by multi-modal solutions from destinations in each member state in the manner that has never been possible. Simply put the new rail system will allow trade across borders to be cheaper, faster, and more predictable, while ensuring the safety and security of the goods.
In addition to upgraded and newly constructed railway infrastructures, Railnet International will also work to develop accompanying infrastructure along rail routes including but not limited to communications, power, and water.
SADC MEMBER STATES
There are 16 member states including: Angola, Botswana, Comoros, Democratic Republic of Congo, Eswatini, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Seychelles, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
The presence of Railnet International will help the region to achieve the following:
Promotion of co-operation and development in all fields of Industry, transport, energy , agriculture and commerce for the purpose of raising the standard of living of the people and also enhancing closer relations among its members therefore contributing hugely to the development of the African continent.
Railnet International will also help the region to harmonize the economic and industrial policies of the member-state and eliminate disparities in the levels of development by giving the region a durable and sophisticated rail way system which will foster an efficient transportation network.
