Lack of integration of transport systems between neighbouring developing countries


Regional financing and design is necessary for efficient international road and rail links, commodity transport and distribution networks, and road and rail connections to harbours and airports. Many small developing countries attempting unilateral infrastructure improvement of transport facilities encounter obstacles resulting from neighbouring countries' circumstances. For example, a land-locked country may build a road or rail line to its border where it is forced to stop, owing to lack of arrangements to join a transit line or road to the seaport.
