The Permanent Mission of Turkmenistan to the United Nations and the International Road Transport Union (IRU) have the honour to invite you to take part in the Panel Discussion “Transport and Transit Corridors: Time for Action” to be held at
Conference Room 6 at the United Nations Headquarters, New York
25 February 2015 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Panel discussion would focus on steps towards implementing the UN GA Resolution of 19 December 2014 entitled “Role of transport and transit corridors in ensuring international cooperation for sustainable development”. The Resolution initiated by the Government of Turkmenistan was supported by the International Road Transport Union (IRU) and co-sponsored by 66 countries. The Resolution became the first document which brings transportation issues to the highest political level and establishes guidelines for the development of the global transport system, its contribution for the Post-2015 Development Agenda.
The Resolution invites Member States, relevant regional and international organizations and entities of the United Nations system, including the regional commissions, to express their views on issues relating to the development of transport and transit corridors by preparing reports, which will be later analyzed and presented in a summary report of the UN Secretary General to the 70th Session of the UN General Assembly.
The purpose of this Panel Discussion is to inform UN Member States, international organizations and business community about the most important issues raised in the Resolution, the tasks which are faced by the international community. It will also focus on potential areas for actions, which will turn transport and transit corridors into instruments for achieving sustainable development goals. The Mission of Turkmenistan and the IRU look forward to welcoming you at this event.
We look forward to seeing you at this event!
