Geneva – February 20-24, 2017
CONEBI was invited by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe to the annual Transport Ministerial meeting dedicated to the “Past and Future of the UNECE Inland Transport Committee (ITC)”. The ITC, that celebrated its 70th anniversary, took stock of its past contributions but also decided on its future mission at a time of profound changes, challenges and opportunities globally. The Meeting of Transport Ministers highlighted the importance of sustainable inland transport in the economy: through its thematic panels, the valuable role of ITC as a gateway to promote connectivity was presented. It plays an important role as a platform to link regulators and innovators with special attention to technologies for sustainable mobility and as a center of UN transport conventions with special attention in considering the benefits of internationally harmonised regulatory governance for inland transport.
