In keeping with the spirit of this important gathering, the Africa Road Builders are asking all African organizations and institutions to share the news about their greatest transportation and road accomplishments so that they can be named the winners of the “Builder Trophy” in 2024.

A number of new categories for the ‘Builder Trophy’ will be introduced in the 2024 edition. According to him, this necessitates enhancing the recognition of all parties involved.

Recall that the Selection Committee, comprised of journalists from all around Africa, is responsible for naming the winner of the Babacar NDIAYE Trophy.

At the conclusion of the Inaugural Conference, the winners of the Builders Trophy and the Super Prize Great Builder – Babacar NDIAYE Trophy will be announced. The winners will be formally presented these prizes during the Final Conference, which will be held in May 2024 in Nairobi, Kenya, as part of the AfDB Annual Meetings.

The General Commission will also suggest to the Selection Committee that the top UAE officials receive a special prize for their achievements in the transportation sector, specifically in the areas of roads and infrastructure.

Just as Dubai and the United Arab Emirates represent progress in terms of roads and transport, the General Commission expects that the Inaugural Conference that has been planned will be inspiring and bring effective development to Africa.

As a global meeting place for development and future-related matters, Dubai is also a fortress.
