The ITC annual session will start on 21 February 2017 with the Transport Ministerial meeting that will be dedicated to the “Past and Future of the UNECE Inland Transport Committee”.
Transport Ministers from the UNECE region and beyond will gather for a Ministerial meeting to celebrate the seventieth anniversary of the Inland Transport Committee, take stock of its past contributions but also decide on its future mission until 2030 at a time of profound changes, challenges and opportunities globally.
The Inland Transport Committee (ITC) is the highest policy-making body of the UNECE in the field of transport. In the course of the last 70 years, together with its subsidiary bodies, the ITC has provided a pan-European intergovernmental forum, where UNECE member countries come together to forge tools for economic cooperation and negotiate and adopt international legal instruments on inland transport.
These legal instruments are considered indispensable for developing efficient, harmonized and integrated, safe and sustainable pan-European transport systems.
