PIARC Advisory Group

PIARC Advisory Group consists of international organizations that PIARC invites to discuss recent activities and trends in the road sector and to identify or progress joint activities. The Advisory Group can also offer recommendations for studies or projects it believes important for the Association to undertake, but which might be beyond the scope of the Strategic Plan.

All types of collaboration activities with PIARC involve the General Secretariat or the Technical Committees and Task Forces - or both - and sometimes call upon actors such as the President or Vice-Presidents.

PIARC is always open to considering new ideas and possible collaboration activities that may benefit the Association’s members.
