The International Transport Forum at the OECD is an intergovernmental organisation with 54 member countries. It acts as a strategic think tank for transport policy and organises an Annual Summit of ministers.
Our goal is to help shape the transport policy agenda on a global level, and ensure that it contributes to economic growth, environmental protection, social inclusion and the preservation of human life and well-being.
The work of the International Transport Forum rests on three pillars:
Annual Summit: The International Transport Forum’s Annual Summit is the unique platform for a global conversation on strategies for transport in the 21st century. At the Summit, ministers from 54 member countries and beyond engage in focused debates with decision-makers from business, civil society leaders and top academics. The International Transport Forum’s 2015 Summit focusing on the theme « Transport, Trade and Tourism » will take place in Leipzig, Germany from 27-29 May 2015.
Think Tank: The work of the International Transport Forum is underpinned by economic research, statistics collection and policy analysis. Its evidence-based insights on transport policy issues make the International Transport Forum an important think tank for policy-makers and the global transport community. Our researchers are committed to delivering impartial analysis of the highest quality. Leading academics, regulators and government economists are regularly engaged in debate in the Research Centre’s roundtables on critical issues for transport policy. The Research Centre also maintains a range of statistics and indicators on transport, as well as specialised databases.
Intergovernmental Organisation: 54 member countrieshave joined forces in the International Transport Forum to advance transport policy. The roots of the organisation lie in the European Conference of Ministers of Transport (ECMT), which met until 2007, when the scope and geographic reach was widened and the format emerged as the International Transport Forum. The International Transport Forum continues to manage the ECMT’s system of Multilateral Licences for international road haulage on the European continent.
