EDITORIAL

Hello,

This new edition of the Newsletter of the World Road Association (PIARC) presents you all the richness of our activities. You will be able to discover our actions in favour of road safety, our reports, our seminars and meetings in Morocco, the Czech Republic and Australia. Our Association indeed covers the whole world, and experts from diverse and remote countries find it useful to work together, to share their experiences and projects, because it is efficient and affordable as compared with savings that are realized.

In the spirit of sharing and exchanging of our Association, I will be pleased to take part in the next International Transport Forum in Leipzig on 1 June. On behalf of our members, I will present the perspective of roads and road transport at the plenary session on the governance of investment in transport infrastructure.

Finally, our next International Winter Road Congress is also featured in this Newsletter. With more than 290 abstracts submitted from more than 40 countries, it is a very clear sign that the Gdansk congress in February 2018 will be a new success and will offer a privileged opportunity to exchange between experts and decision-makers. I hope to see you there again.
