Inland Transport Committee

Introduction

The Inland Transport Committee (ITC) is the highest policy-making body of the UNECE in the field of transport. In the course of the last 72 years, together with its subsidiary bodies, the ITC has provided an  intergovernmental forum, where UNECE and other United Nations Member States come together to forge tools for economic cooperation and negotiate and adopt international legal instruments on inland transport.

These legal instruments are considered indispensable for developing efficient, harmonized and integrated, safe and sustainable inland transport systems.

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.
