ESCAP-ADB National Workshops on the Secure Cross Border Transport Model #2

27 Feb 2014 to 28 Feb 2014
Thimpu, Bhutan

ESCAP’s Transport Division and Subregional Office for South and Southwest Asia is organizing two national workshops on the Secure Cross Border Transport Model. The first will be held in New Delhi on 20 January and the second will be held in Thimbu from 27 to 28 February. The Secure Cross-Border Transport Model provides a tool for developing a secure, smooth and efficient system for cross-border movement of goods and vehicles, and helps control authorities to provide a more facilitated environment for cross-border transport. The workshops are being undertaken jointly with the Asian Development Bank and aim to inform key stakeholders on the potential benefits of vehicle tracking systems. The vehicle training needs of different countries will also be discussed.
