New transport agenda for Asia, Pacific

New transport agenda for Asia, Pacific. [Newspaper] (2021)


TRANSPORT ministers from across Asia and the Pacific are meeting this week to consider a potentially transformational agenda for how people and goods are moved around the region and across the globe. Pre-Covid-19 transport connectivity weaknesses in the Asia-Pacific region became even more apparent during the pandemic — landlocked developing countries, least developed countries and small island developing states were particularly affected. Therefore, it is imperative that we accelerate meaningful change in transport systems as countries seek to put their development agendas back on track. It is against this backdrop that officials meeting at the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific for the fourth Ministerial Conference on Transport are debating a Regional Action Programme (RAP) for 2022-2026, a new roadmap for a transport system needed to attain the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The RAP would address issues like increasing freight and passenger volumes.
