The Summit theme is "Greening Transport: keeping focus in times of crisis". Participants will seek ways to accelerate climate action in transport in a wider context of wars, natural disasters and other crises.
The role of artificial intelligence for our future mobility will also feature in the discussions.

The Summit will include Ministerial Roundtables on
•    Ukraine;
•    Climate change;
•    Inclusive transport;
•    Supply-chain resilience
and a wide range of other topics. 

The Summit of the International Transport Forum takes place for the 16th time. Since 2008, it has established itself as the world’s premier transport policy event.

The ITF is an intergovernmental organisation with 66 member countries on five continents. It acts as a think tank for member governments and organises global dialogue for better transport. It is administratively integrated in the OECD but politically independent. Find out more about the ITF.
