Oct. 9, Wednesday. 14:00-17:30

Conference Room C

Chair: Mr Nazir ALLI, Former CEO of SANRAL, South African National Roads Agency, South Africa

Numerous stakeholders are involved in transportation projects, regardless of their size and scope, not least the public at large; the costs and effects of the projects impact citizens and society. Transparency is needed, and the best way to achieve collective trust and confidence is through collective action. In addition to dealing with governance of transport administrations, the need to outreach to other organizations that have dealt with these issues has appeared more relevant since last years have witnessed profound changes in the way such organizations have managed governance issues at large.
