New transport sector code
THE Department of Trade and Industry ( DTI) invites members of the public and other interest parties to make inputs on the Draft Amended Transport Sector Code, which was recently gazetted for a 60- day public commentary period.
The eight sub- sector codes are aviation, bus commuter and coach services, forward and clearing, maritime, public sector, road freight, rail and taxi.
DTI Minister Rob Davies said the rail sub- sector codes will be used as an indicator to measure representation of black youth in technical and profes- sional positions in the rail industry.
“The target is at least 10%, which would increase the number of youth in technical and professional positions in the industry. Furthermore, a target of 35% black ownership has been set by the bus commuter and coach services sub- sector code to increase the level of black ownership in the bus and coach sectors,” Davies said.
The closing date for the commentary period is June 8. Interested parties are requested to forward their comments to the following address: transportsector[email protected]
