Since 2008, the ITF Annual Summit has developed into the leading global get-together of the key players in transport and transport-related sectors, providing a unique platform for high-level exchange on strategic policy issues.
The theme of the 2015 Summit is Transport, Trade and Tourism and it will take place under the Presidency of New Zealand starting today and going until Friday.
More than 1,000 participants from around 70 countries are expected to attend the summit along with transport ministers from all over the globe for two-and-a-half days to discuss the role of transport in a world of growing global trade and rapidly expanding tourism. United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon will address the ministers via a video message.
The International Transport Forum is an intergovernmental organisation within the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) system. The ITF - the only global body that covers all transport modes - has 54 member countries and acts as think tank for transport policy.
