Delegates from the Democratic Republic of the Congo's various government road sector institutions are on a benchmarking visit to Namibia.


The visit, which aims at sharing technical skills on the maintenance of roads, is a partnership between Road Fund Administrators within SADC and other organisations such as the Walvis Bay Corridor Group to pass road maintenance skills to those that are linked to the transport hub concept.


The two-day visit is divided into parts on the technical aspects of how Namibia constructs roads, how the country invests in road infrastructure, and visiting various gravel roads.


Namibia has been ranked first in terms of road quality and connectivity in Africa for the past five years and has since become a benchmarking destination.
