Conference Global Transport Development Challenges



On 11 September 2018, high-profile transport and logistics industry experts gathered on the fifth annual international transport and logistics industry conference Global Transport Development Challenges organised by VAS Latvijas dzelzceļš (LDz), and discussed how the global events in politics, economics, science and society affect the transport and logistics industry and how they can be used for the advancement of the industry.

Over these years, Riga and the LDz conference have become an important meeting point for transport and logistics industry experts and decision-makers from European and Asian countries.

This year, the conference focused on technological achievements that create new synergies and unexpected opportunities for cooperation and innovation. The experts were discussin about the trends and opportunities for creating new types of cooperation both within and outside the transport and logistics industry to ensure successful business development in today’s intense competition.

Alongside technological developments and the creation of new routes, the matters up for discussion included railway development, competitiveness and financing mechanisms.

One of the main subjects of the conference was the potential of Latvia as a centre of excellence for transport and logistics in respect to the connection between Northern European and Asian countries and involvement in the International North–South Transport Corridor.
