TIR 75: International Road Transport Driving Resilience and Prosperity
4 - 6 Sep 2024

International Road Transport Driving Resilience and Prosperity

Tashkent | IRU event | Invitation only

The road ahead: 75 years of TIR

As announced during the Goods Transport Council in Geneva on 6 June, the Association of International Road Carriers of Uzbekistan (AIRCUZ), in partnership with IRU, is inviting all IRU members to attend the conference “International Road Transport: Driving Resilience and Prosperity. The road ahead: 75 years of TIR” on Wednesday 4 September 2024, in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.

Road transport is an essential service: no country can live without it. A majority of the region’s transport corridors are multimodal and require multiple transshipments. Therefore, resilient and sustainable connectivity needs resilient and sustainable road transport. This remains vital, especially for landlocked countries to become land-linked trading nations.

This unique conference will bring together IRU members and industry leaders from the region and beyond, international organisations, development partners and international financial institutions. 
Exchanges between stakeholders allow trade and logistics actors across the supply chain to overcome challenges and capitalise on opportunities to streamline international trade. 

As a shining example, the event will highlight 75 years of the TIR system, the United Nations’ longest continuous public-private partnership, which has been so critical to facilitating transit and trade, increasing efficiency and and reducing carbon emissions. Ultimately, enhanced “hard” infrastructure needs to be effectively coupled with “soft” infrastructure.

Participants are also cordially invited to the dinner, which will take place in central Tashkent, from 18:00 on 4 September 2024.

Following the conference and offering extensive networking and business matchmaking opportunities, a special tour to the heart of the ancient Silk Road, the city of Bukhara, will take place from 5 to 6 September 2024. This will include an informal roundtable on east-west and north-south connectivity on 5 September.

Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity!

Kindly note that the registration closes on 19 August 2024

If you have any questions, please contact Mr Dmitriy Chubenko for AIRCUZ or Ms Valeria Popova for IRU.
