Major goals and objectives of the National Transport Strategy (NTS) have been developed previously with the support of the UN system. Emphasis in this project will be on the implementation of the Strategy. As part of the NTS (Phase I), private sector participation has been initiated but actual implementation is expected during the next years in the road and railroad sectors. Due to rapid growth of the urban population and traffic, ephasis in Phase II of the NTS is shifting to "Traffic Safety", "Development of Urban Transportation" and "Transportation and Environment". The purpose of the project is to develop the necessary national expertise/capacity, to enable the transport sector to claim a leading role in these fields.
