IRU Resolution to actively promote a multilateral approach to trade, tourism and international road transport facilitation to achieve economic development - 2011.
In today’s globalised economy, professional road transport is no longer merely a mode of transport, but a vital production tool for goods transport and tourism programmes that contributes considerably to social and economic prosperity while ensuring the achievements of the UN Millennium Development Goals. To ensure that the road transport sector can play its role in driving EU growth, the IRU and its Members therefore call upon Governments to end protectionist measures which impede international trade, travel and road transport, hence economic development, and harmonise market conditions through appropriate measures.
