21 Feb 2017 Geneva

The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) Inland Transport Committee’s (ITC) annual meetings and 70th anniversary celebrations are putting a spotlight on reaching the UN’s 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

Events include IRU’s annual cocktail, celebrating the continuing successful partnership between IRU and UNECE, and regular sessions and various side events, such as the Global Road Safety Film Festival.

Consolidating past contributions and reviewing its future mission, the role of the ITC is being considered in the context of profound global change.

Transport Ministers from the UNECE region and beyond gathered in Geneva today for the ministerial meeting entitled the “Past and Future of the UNECE Inland Transport Committee”.
