For the second time in the pandemic era, ADB is hosting the Asia and the Pacific Transport Forum to discuss how transport will work in a changed world.

From 5 to 7 April 2022, ADB will be hosting a series of special webinars and dedicated, online sessions to bring together the expert community and discuss the acceleration of change in transport and mobility.

The Asia and the Pacific Transport Forum serves as the premiere gathering of experts, government counterparts, and stakeholders in Asia and the Pacific to discuss the region's transport issues, the applied and potential solutions to these issues, and the future of the sector, especially in light of global targets such as the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement.

How to register

The virtual Transport Forum is open to the public, but the organizers will be screening all registrants as this is a specialized event.
