International Transport Forum 2019

Transport Connectivity for Regional Integration

Around the globe, between countries, from city to city, or to the other side of town, good transport infrastructure and efficient mobility services bring people together and goods to their markets. The connectivity that transport provides widens horizons and opens up opportunities. It builds stronger communities and expands their reach. It strengthens our economies and helps our societies to prosper.

The 2019 ITF Summit will explore how better transport connectivity can help integrate regions - from local communities and cities to global regions - and enable the achievement of economic, social, and environmental goals.

How can more seamless connections enhance door to door travel? Where can we build bridges, real and metaphorical, for better cross-border mobility? What will connect better institutions, so they can function in a more integrated way?
