Background & policy context: 

The International Transport Forum evolved from the ECMT in 2006/7. At the time, ministers decided to invite new members from non-European countries in order to address transport issues on a global level and for all transport modes, and to create a public platform for a broad policy dialogue.

Strategic Objectives: 

The main goal of the International Transport Forum is to help shape the transport policy agenda on a global level, and ensure that it contributes to economic growth, environmental protection, social inclusion and the preservation of human life and well-being.

Programme organisation: 

The International Transport Forum at the OECD is an intergovernmental organisation with 54 member countries. It acts as a strategic think tank for transport policy and organises an Annual Summit of ministers.

The International Transport Forum is designed to be a flexible, efficient and politically responsible institution. They are divided into a secretary, an annual changing presidency, a transport management board (TMB) a task force and a research centre, which all shall contribute to shaping international transport.
