He also stated that that the forum would examine the plans of government to use transportation as a vehicle to alleviate regional inequality and foster cohesive national integration. “The forum will explore opportunities that abound in the sector for the organised private sector and the international investors in addressing the transportation and logistics challenges,” Akeju added.
