Each year in May, the International Transport Forum (ITF) organises a global event in Leipzig bringing together ministers from around the world to share policy perspectives with CEOs, heads of international organisations, thought leaders from civil society and academia, and media.
On 24 January, UIC participated in a consultation organised by ITF, at OECD Headquarters.
This consultation day, bringing together international organisations, gave Mr François Davenne, UIC Deputy Director General, the opportunity to participate in the discussions and to provide some input in relation to the theme of the 2019 Summit: Transport connectivity for regional integration – in particular the challenge to better manage interfaces with public transport. The MOU between UITP and UIC signed in 2018 is the relevant framework for bringing concrete solutions.
The themes of the Forum are fully in line with UIC’s major concerns: connectivity, regional integration, and sustainable development.
UIC will also be pleased to participate in this Forum from 22 – 24 May in Leipzig to extend these discussions.
