Advocacy

UITP Asia-Pacific Division maintains an active work plan with international organisations present in the Asia-Pacific region via advocacy activities that help achieve UITP’s work objectives.

We collaborate with partners including Asian Development Bank, UN-ESCAP, KOTI, KRRI, CITYNET-AP, Land Transport Authority Academy, and participate in significant lobbying events such as the EU-China Summit (Beijing), World Cities Summit (Singapore).

Occasionally we participate in declarations with city authorities to highlight the importance and achievements of public transport, for instance the Taipei Manifesto (2009).

The Asia-Pacific Region participates actively in public awareness campaigns, including the launch of the World Expo 2010 Shanghai campaign and the Grow with Public Transport campaign in Asia-Pacific.
