From 26 to 28 May 2013, ASECAP will hold its 41st Study and Information Days in Dubrovnik, Croatia
The 41st annual ASECAP Study and Information Days will explore the role of the toll roads in promoting sustainable growth. It will be the occasion for high-level panellists representing toll road infrastructure operators and EU decision-makers to discuss sustainability issues related to infrastructure financing, operation, maintenance, safety and the environment, while considering how Intelligent Transport Systems contribute in a most efficient way to the achievement of the goals set.
Moreover, the conference will follow a new format, reflecting the interconnection, under the umbrella of sustainability, between questions regarding tolling and concessions, road safety and security, and Intelligent Transport Systems. It will finally exploit the added value of combining the unmatched technical expertise and field experience of ASECAP Members with top-notch political considerations.
The first day of discussions (Monday 27 May) will therefore be marked by subsequent plenary sessions with a full day of expert presentations followed by questions and answers on subjects falling under the responsibility of ASECAP’s different Permanent Committees (COPERs), i.e.:
- COPER I: tolling and concessions
- COPER II: road safety, security and sustainability
- COPER III: Intelligent Transport Systems
On the second day (Tuesday 28 May), the various developments in the EU road transport sector will then be examined during half a day from a truly political angle. High-level EU decision-makers and ASECAP personalities will first debate about the current economic situation in the EU and the role of toll roads as a lasting key factor for growth, following which the select members of ASECAP’s Executive Committee will draw the relevant political conclusions and develop the ensuing key messages, thus laying the basis for ASECAP’s continued action in support of Europe’s toll road infrastructure operators, their customers and the well-being of society as a whole.
The one-and-a-half day conference programme is set out in detail in this website – you will undoubtedly not want to miss this opportunity to exchange views with the speakers and conference delegates about the extraordinary developments taking place in Europe’s toll road infrastructure sector.
