African Development Bank Group meeting in Lusaka, Zambia.

The African Development Bank [AfDB Group] investments in transport and ICT in 2015 will collectively improve mobility of at least 1.2 million users of public transport, result in the creation of about 200,000 jobs in the ICT sector, with almost 18 million people benefitting from improvements in road infrastructure.
These are the findings of the AfDB’s 2015 Annual Report on Transport and Information and communications technology (ICT).
“The expected impacts over the next few years in integrating Africa, boosting agriculture, and facilitating industrialization will be tremendous,” said Amadou Oumarou, AfDB Director for Transport and ICT Infrastructure.
