Discover PIARC's new Technical Advisors for the 2020 - 2023 cycle
Technical Advisors are qualified road professionals, seconded by a country to the Association in order to enable the activities of its General Secretariat and to help provide services to its members. Technical Advisors seconded by Sweden, Japan, South Korea, Germany, Mexico and Poland are currently working at the General Secretariat, under the coordination of Miguel Caso Flórez, Technical Director (seconded by Spain).
