The 81st annual session of the Inland Transport Committee (ITC) was held from 19 to 22 February 2019, in Geneva with the participation of Transport Ministers from Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East, alongside 400 participants from 75 countries and several heads of inland transport organizations.

At the conclusion of the High-level policy segment Ministers, Vice Ministers and Heads of Delegations from Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East adopted a resolution calling for the enhancement of cooperation, harmonization and integration in the era of transport digitalization and automation. The highlights of the session included the adoption of the ITC strategy until 2030, as well as the adoption of the text of a new Convention on passenger transport by rail, which will now be open for signature for all United Nations Member States.
