The International Transport Forum Summit is the world’s largest gathering of transport ministers and the premier global transport policy event. The Summit will take place from 23 to 25 May 2018 in Leipzig, Germany. Around 1400 decision-makers from more than 80 countries are expected to attend, including more than three dozen ministers. Participants come from governments, business, international organizations and academia.

The 2018 Summit on “Transport Safety and Security” will address issues ranging from terrorism and cyber-security to road safety and extreme weather disruption, including the risks and benefits of automated driving. Safety and security are core concerns for transport. A transport system that is safe and secure enables passengers to travel without fear and allows businesses to ship goods reliably and efficiently. Enhancing transport safety and security is also an essential element in the implementation of two major international agreements, the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Climate Agreement.
