IRU promotes UN road transport agreements
The International Road Union (IRU) has briefed a EuroMed delegation on the benefits of fully implementing the UN's main road transport agreements, notably the harmonization and TIR conventions, as the best tools to facilitate and secure trade and international road transport.
The IRU also showcased the benefits of implementing high quality professional training programmes based on international standards, such as those developed by the IRU Academy. The seminar was attended by representatives from public and private sectors in Algeria, Israel, Jordan, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia, and was organised as part of a EuroMed regional study tour.
