  3. The Maputo Corridor A economic corridor linking the economic hub of South Africa to the Port of Maputo Launched as a tri-lateral initiative between South Africa, Mozambique and Swaziland in the 1990’s The initiative has seen massive investment in transport infrastructure over the last decade – road rail, ports There has also been significant economic investment Socio-economic impact has been independently evaluated and demonstrated to be significant The initiative therefore has been and continues to be considered one of the more successful corridor development programmes in the region

  4. The Maputo Corridor Logistics Initiative (MCLI) • The MCLI is a non profit corridor management institution established with the objective of revitalising the transport route, the investment in key infrastructure, and removal of bottlenecks and constraints to trade • It is multi-lateral (SA, Mozambique, Swaziland) and multi-stakeholder membership organisation working with a PPP model • It operates within the framework of NEPAD, SADC and AU transport corridor development policy and has its emphasis on the promotion of cross border trade and investment and regional integration • The initiative began after a hiatus of some years in the formal corridor development process following the failure of the institutional mechanism set up at the time by the Mpumalanga Provincial Government • Achievements • High visibility, particularly in freight and logistics sector • Successful interface between Government and the private sector to the highest level • Acknowledged on African continent as model corridor institutional framework • Wide stakeholder reach and communication on the corridor • Increased usage of the corridor • NEPAD Infrastructure Award

  5. The role of the MCLI INTEGRATE – COORDINATE – COMMUNICATE - FACILITATE Act as a platform for engagement/interface between the public and private sector stakeholders to resolve constraints Promote the Maputo Corridor and market the strategic benefits and opportunities of the Corridor Coordinate and disseminate information and research on the Maputo Corridor Participation in key National and Regional bodies and forums

  6. Successes of the Maputo Corridor • N4 – Road Concession • Ongoing rehabilitation of infrastructure • Nelspruit Bypass – R1BN • Freight volume has increased by 11% p.a. at the Nkomazi Toll Plaza and 28%p.a. at the Moamba Toll Plaza • Upgrade of the rail corridor to Maputo • Maputo Corridor – 5th SA Rail Corridor • Private sector investment in rolling stock • Port of Maputo • Private concession on the Port of Maputo (>2043) • Massive upgrades in port infrastructure • Investment $750M – early 5 years • e.g. Container Terminal – 100K TEU to 180K TEU, Coal Terminal - expand from 2M to 6M ton, Car Terminal, Passenger cruise terminal • Channel dredging programme completed Jan 2011 to increase current draft from 9.4m to 11m, with the tide, which will accommodate Panamax size vessels • Increased throughput from current 8.7 Million tons to 48 million tons • Port Masterplan envisages a further capital investment in the port of USD $750million in the next 20 years

  7. Successes of the Maputo Corridor • The Lebombo/Ressano Garcia Border Post • Upgrading of Lebombo border post (S.A.) in 2010 - separation of freight traffic, busses, passengers and pedestrians • Design allows later incorporation into the OSBP • Rail facility development is on the cards • Km 4 upgrade and km 7 upgrade on he cards • 24 hour operation during Festive season and lobbying for year-round opening of the border on a 24 hour basis • Border process improvements - SA Customs modernisation, MOZ – Single window system • MCLI has successfully maintained a multi-sector participation at all levels, including its Executive and sponsorship structures

  8. 174 Members and Cooperation Partners from Mozambique, Swaziland and South Africa

  9. Government and the Private Sector • The PPP model adopted by the MCLI has enabled • Shared responsibility and mutual accountability • Access to key sector relationships and institutional knowledge • Access to important strategic partnerships • Maximisation of synergies between public and private sector skills, knowledge and expertise • Alleviation of capacity constraints and bottlenecks through a shared approach and shared mobilisation of resources and expertise • Maximising the use of public and private investment for the benefit of all corridor users

  10. Key challenges and lessons learnt from the Maputo Corridor • Vision • Clear, consistent and long-term vision • Addressing the needs of multiple stakeholders – “what is in it for me?” • On-going communication and sharing of the vision • Mandate • Support the Vision - clear, consistent and long-term (across several political administrations) • Needs to be strong enough to allow and ensure effective participation across multiple Government departments in various countries, and in regional structures • Needs to be neutral enough to ensure objectivity between the needs of various stakeholders (“minefield”) • Should not be seen as threatening - making any one stakeholder look bad and non-performing • Some level of diplomatic status • Structure • Should reflect the Vision – non-profit allows clarity of Vision • Should ensure transparency, good governance and representative participation - important that one country is not perceived as the “leader/benefactor” to the detriments of the others • Should facilitate the necessary funding arrangements

  11. Key challenges and lessons learnt from the Maputo Corridor • Sustainability • Should reflect the Vision – long-term • Should allow neutrality of mandate and not be hijacked by key funders or the need to “sell” services to survive • Should not detract capacity from delivering on objectives – ensuring financial sustainability at times becomes a full time job at the expense on corridor development activities • Capacity • Executive participation by private sector and Government representatives is key – continuity of participation is a challenge • Government – frequent changes of staff • Private sector – sometimes participate only until certain issues are addressed • Must support the Mandate and be supported by funding – should ensure top level technical capacity is put in place, sustained and retained

  12. Key success factors Passionate leadership An active secretariat and committed board of directors from both public and private sector out of both countries An institutional framework with the right mix of partners Relationships built through MCLI’s interface between public and private sector through weight of membership mandate Strong stakeholder support base Bilateral agreements at national level On-going political will in the region …….
