The experts will inform you about current and upcoming projects involving rural and inter-urban road upgrades, urban transportation, railways, global road safety, as well as projects for the port and aviation sectors.

You will also have the opportunity to speak to international delegates sharing the same vision and to demonstrate your skills and interests in the transportation sector to IFI experts. You will learn about the requirements and constraints relating to projects, and ways of gaining access to projects funded by the multilateral banks. You will also learn how projects are launched and carried out and how your company can stay informed of upcoming projects.

In FY 2014 the IFI’s spent over 50 billion USD combined on transportation projects around the world. Upcoming years they will focus on themes as Rapid urbanization and motorization, Integrated urban transport planning, and Public transport systems.
