Schedule
18 November 2014
1:30-6:00pm

Venue
On Golden Pond Room, Taj Samudra Hotel

Description
As Asia and the Pacific region move along the pathway toward a Regional Cooperation Agreement on Green Freight, the topic itself has taken urgency as governments face a crisis of economic efficiency of their freight and logistics sectors, in combination with a renewed focus on air pollution, safety, energy security and climate change.
This pre-event will first focus on the global initiatives underway to try to address freight and logistics challenges, and how Asia and the Pacific region fit in the context of those efforts. It will continue with a discussion on the challenges both the public and private sectors face in scaling up these efforts, and strategies that are being developed to allow cooperation to drive changes for the millions of companies globally who operate in the freight and logistics sector.
