Background to the ITF

The International Transport Forum at the OECD is an intergovernmental organisation with 52 member countries. It acts as a strategic think tank for transport policy and organizes an annual summit of ministers. Its work rests on three pillars:

  1. Annual summit: the platform for a global conversation on strategies for transport in the 21st century. At the summit, ministers from 52 member countries and beyond engage in focused debates with decision-makers from business, civil society leaders and top academics. This year's summit focuses on the theme "Transport for Society".
  2. Think Tank: The work of the International Transport Forum is underpinned by economic research, statistics collection and policy analysis. Its evidence-based insights on transport policy issues make the International Transport Forum and important think tank for policy-makers and the global transport community.
  3. Intergovernmental Organisation: 52 member countries have joined forces in the International Transport Forum to advance transport policy. The roots of the organisation lie in the European Conference of Ministers of Transport (ECMT), which met until 2007, when the scope and geographic reach was widened and the format emerged as the International Transport Forum. The International Transport Forum continues to manage the ECMT's system of Multilateral Licences for international road haulage on the European continent.
