Report: Make Roads Safer & GCC Will See Economic Boom
A new report from Strategy&, part of PWC, states that countries in the GCC have a significant opportunity to improve road safety which will lead to far less fatalities and major economic growth.
The drive would be part of a move ot realise “Vision Zero”, which aims for no deaths or serious injuries on the roads.
The report states: "A concerted effort would bring major benefits reducing the numbers of road fatalities, which are high compared with those of many other countries.
"It would also have tangible implications for healthcare systems and the economy more broadly.
"Were GCC countries only to attain Target 4 of the 12 global road safety performance targets, they could reduce yearly road fatalities by around 2,800 and achieve a collective economic benefit of approximately US$250 billion over the course of 20 years."
