Jeddah, (IINA) - Statistical, Economic and Social Research for Islamic Countries (SESRIC), a subsidiary organ of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), published the “State of Transportation in D-8 Countries” report, which presents objective information and analysis on the current state and challenges facing the Developing-8 Organization’s (D-8) member states.
The D-8 includes Bangladesh, Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Malaysia, Nigeria, Pakistan, and Turkey. The report addresses different modes of transport including land, air, and water transportation. Moreover, it elaborates on how transportation affects trade, tourism, and the environment.
The report concludes with some specific policy recommendations at the national and D-8 cooperation level. The report also compares modes of transport and their effects between D-8 member states, non-D-8 OIC countries, non-d-8 developing countries, and developed countries.
“Transportation is a leading sector in both national and regional development, which contributes to the socio-economic development of societies through boosting trade, jobs, and the living standards.” SESRIC Director General Musa Kulaklıkaya stated in the report.
“The provision of adequate and efficient transportation services is an essential requirement not only for gaining access to national, regional, and international markets, but also for facilitating the provision of healthcare and education services, which in turn, promote development and create investment opportunities.”
He added: “Investments and improvements in the transportation sector will contribute to the expansion of intra-trade among (D-8) countries, thus, enhancing their competitiveness at regional and international levels.”
