Driving safety through engineering, enforcement, education and technology.
Under the patronage of His Excellency Mr. Jasim Saif Ahmed Al-Sulaiti, Minister of Transport and Communications and endorsed by the Ministry of Transport and Communications, IQPC is proud to present the 5th edition of the Qatar Transport Safety Forum.
As the country pushes with its ambitious plans of the 2030 strategy and with the authorities gearing themselves for a steep growth in population, road safety has become increasingly more important in making Qatar a safe environment for all of its citizens. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals have stipulated that road deaths need to be reduced by 50% by 2020 and Qatar has moved quickly to achieve this ambitious target.
Central to this is the development of a smart transportation network which will not only improves safety but also facilitates the smoother transport of passengers and goods in the country whilst assisting in the reduction of CO2 emissions. The ITS master plan has been finalised and the process is moving forward into the implementation phase with the integration of all the forms of transportation including rail, road, maritime and air will be the most critical step in developing a cohesive and safe transport network in the country.
Join us for this high-level gathering of government, consultants, system contractors and global leaders driving road safety and smart mobility projects in the region this September in Doha, Qatar and find out how you can contribute in making life better in the region through improved transport safety.
