Transport and Covid-19: responses and resources

Shaping the future of intelligent transport

Current transport systems and the policies that guide them must anticipate disruptions that originate outside the sector. Transport systems will benefit from policy frameworks that help foster innovation. This was ITF Secretary-General Young Tae Kim's message to a distinguished audience on the opening day of the ITS World conference in Singapore on 21 October 2020.

At a high-level Policy Roundtable, Secretary-General Kim underlined that smart policies take will take into account incentives for transport users and avoid incentive structures that generate undesirable outcomes. During the first day of ITF World, Secretary-General Kim met with Malaysia’s Minister of Works, Mr Baru Bian, the European Union's outgoing Transport Commissioner Violeta Bulc, and Mr. Arul Luis Leonard, Vice President for Partnership and International Relations of Singapore Airlines.

Mr Kim also delivered a keynote address at the opening session of the first-ever EU-ASEAN Workshop on ITS (photo) while in Singapore on 24 October. See the joint press release.
