TO strengthen and improve the local taxi industry, owners and operators around the region attended a special workshop at the Empangeni Country Club last week.

The training programmes drew on the expertise of experienced academic personnel and industry specialists, who formed part of the collaboration with the purpose of supporting the development of the industry.

Experts provided operators with information on how to train their drivers on various issues, and ensure their vehicles are roadworthy and drivers obey road rules.
