IRU and Busworld are joining forces to organise, within the Busworld India exhibition, a set of seminars to promote best policy and business practices in safe and sustainable transport.
The International Road Transport Union (IRU) and Busworld International are joining forces to organise a set of seminars focusing on sustainable mobility.
The seminar on 28 April is dedicated to “Smart Policy and Smart Technology for Smart City Mobility” with the discussions focusing on sustainable mobility, sustainable urban planning, bus rapid transit, and coach tourism.
Janusz Lacny, IRU President, said, “Building on the IRU’s international experience and expertise, as well as our achievements with the joint Smart Move campaign to double the use of buses and coaches, we want to launch, together with our Indian partners and stakeholders, an all-Indian Smart Move High Level Group, to identify the main barriers and work out practical solutions to achieve safe, sustainable and affordable mobility for all, at the lowest cost for society.”
The seminar on 29 April, entitled “In the footsteps of Prime Minister Mr Modi: Increasing mobility via cleaner, safer and effective bus and coach services” focuses on electro-mobility and safety as part of the Smart Move campaign and its values.
Didier Ramoudt, President of Busworld International, said, “Throughout its existence, Busworld has been a focal point for people who want to find all kinds of information on the many aspects of the bus and coach industry. Using our worldwide network of exhibitors, operators, academics, journalists, engineers and other contacts, we have always been able to point people in the right direction. We have formalised these abilities by establishing the Busworld Academy. For each region, we adapt the Busworld Academy seminars to local needs. For India this is clearly to have a cleaner, safer and more effective bus and coach service.”
The two-day seminars are supported by UN-Habitat, Embarq India, the Travel Agents Association of India and the European Business and Technology Centre, in partnership with Urban News Digest.
Busworld India 2015 is a B2B exhibition in the bus and coach industry, bringing together 250 bus and coach manufacturers and their suppliers, with more than 6,000 customers. This is the 6th edition of Busworld India and it is taking place in Mumbai from 28 to 30 April 2015.
