The International Transport Forum (ITF)
The International Transport Forum (ITF) is an inter-governmental organisation within the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development). Established on May 18, 2006 on the basis of the European Conference of Ministers of Transport (1953). ITF unites 59 member states in order to advance the global transport policy agenda. It works to facilitate exchanging of information on international level and to improve the capacity for decision making in member countries.
The International Transport Forum provides to the politicians and the international transport community ideas on transport policy. Its work is underpinned by economic research, statistics collection and policy analysis carried out by its in-house Research Centre, often in collaboration with researchers from academia, business and government.
Every year, the Annual Summit of the International Transport Forum brings together ministers from member countries and invited countries in Leipzig, Germany, to debate a specific, transport-related theme with leaders from industry, civil society and the research community.
Ukraine is an ITF’s member in accordance with the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine 19.03.1997 No. 344 “On the Admission of the Government of Ukraine to the European Conference of Ministers of Transport”
