External Financ ial Controls Annual audits by registered auditor in terms of Public Accountants and Auditors act. CBRTA financial reports to Minister to be tabled in Parliament. 8 REGULATION OF CROSS-BORDER ROAD TRANSPORT IS DONE IN SUPPORT OF NOT ONLY THE RSAS ECONOMY BUT ALSO THAT OF THE REGION. Permit fees can, therefore, not be raised indiscriminately to support the regulatory function in total without taking into account the effect on the already over inflated transport costs in the region.
The income derived from permit fees also depends on many factors totally out of the agencys control. MAIN EXTERNALITIES THAT HAD AN IMPACT ON THE CROSSBORDER ACTIVITIES FOR THE PERIOD IN QUESTION: Stagnation of economies in other SADC countries, resulting in less purchase power, and therefore less need for transport. Fuel shortages and natural disasters such as the droughts experienced in the last season make their mark on the income of the agency. High unemployment rate brought less passenger movement Political instability in other countries with whom we have agreements. The closing down of mines and certain industries which are no longer economically viable and the laying off of large numbers of workers had a major impact on the need for passenger services to other countries (migrant mine workers). Positive economic growth in certain neighbouring countries such as Mozambique brought an increase in movement of goods between South Africa and Mozambique. 9 HEAD COUNT F0R THE YEAR 2000 65%

Transkalari-Corridor which will allow freight to transit through Botswana to Namibia. A pilot project on the customs procedure is underway and is intended to be carried out for the next three months. The taxi passenger industry took up a substantial 60% of the market movement, which includes labour migrant worker transport. Tourism movement also takes a portion of the market. SWAZILAND The biggest market portion is the conveyance of freight. Passenger movement comprises of hawkers and migrant mineworkers. Tourism is also active between the countries. LESOTHO Freight conveyance once again is the largest share of the market. 19 There are prospects that passenger conveyance will increase in future due to the fact that negotiations on implementation of the agreement is underway and Lesotho is currently developing cross border ranking facilities which is intended to be in operation by June 2002
NAMIBIA Very strong market shares in freight conveyance comprising of mainly livestock and farming products. The freight conveyance to Namibia has seen a swing to the Trans-Kalahari Corridor through Botswana due to the cost effectiveness of using the corridor. 20 STATI STI CS ON THE MOVEMENT OF VEHI CLES TO THE SOUTHERN AFRI CAN CUSTOMS UNI ON STATES [MULTI LATERAL AGREEMENT] BOTSWANA SWAZILAND LESOTHO NAMIBIA Pass Goods
