Global transport community tackles funding dilemma at ITF's 2013 Summit

1000 participants from 76 countries, including 50 Ministers and Vice-Ministers, pushed the envelope on new approaches for transport funding at ITF's 2013 Summit in Leipzig, Germany, from 22-24 May.

The 2013 event offered the richest programme of any Summit to date, with 16 plenaries and panel discussions, 15 press conferences and media briefings, a dozen technical and cultural excursions as well as twelve side events organised by ITF's partners during the Summit.

More than 60 bilateral meetings were held between delegations on the fringe of the Summit and five bilateral agreements were signed between member countries.
