The regular International Transport Forum was held on 31 May-2 June 2017, in Leipzig under the motto on Governance of Transport. Transport governance affects decisions regarding everything from local cycle paths to global trade routes. The governance framework both responds to and shapes decision-making and policies addressing inter alia environmental and climate considerations, working conditions, accessibility, and technical solutions, as well as organizational and financial challenges for the sector that are in constant flux.

Important factors in this include legislative and regulatory frameworks, attribution and devolution of responsibilities between different levels of authority and across sectors and involvement of stakeholders.The Summit’s attention was focused on the issues of infrastructure, global connectivity, the right regulation for innovation, and urban access and mobility.

During participation Mr. Mircea Ciopraga, Secretary General of TRACECA exchanged views with the interested parties and representatives of the transport sector and informed on the status development within TRACECA activities as well as on the measures taken with a view of further development.
