If you are a participant in international transportation, you cannot afford to miss the FIATA World Congress to be held on 22-26 September 2008 at the Vancouver Convention & Exhibition Centre in Vancouver, Canada.
One of the highlights shall be the Forum “Infrastructure, Today’s Challenge for Tomorrow’s Sustainable Transport” scheduled for 23rd September, 2008. Few of those of us who are involved in the movement of cargo by land or sea have not encountered difficulties posed by the huge increase in world trade, for which our infrastructures have been slow to respond. The topic will be addressed by Mrs. Datin Paduka O.C. Phang, President of the International Association of Ports and Harbours; Mr. Cliff MacKay, President and CEO of the Railway Association of Canada; Mr. Robert Steen Kledal, Group Vice President of AP Moller-Maersk A/S; Mrs. Lisa Gow, Executive Director of the Pacific Gateway Branch, Ministry of Transportation of British Columbia; and Mr. Paul R. Landry, President and CEO of the British Columbia Trucking Association. Moderator of this interesting forum will be Mr. Christopher J. Gillespie, Past President of FIATA.
For more information please contact the FIATA Secretariat in Glattbrugg, Switzerland.
