Multilateral engagement

Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC)

The Department leads Australia’s Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) engagement on transport matters addressed in the APEC Transportation Ministers’ Meeting supported by the Transportation Working Group (TPTWG). We coordinate across Australian government agencies where matters addressed sit outside of the Department’s remit. Other Australian agencies lead APEC engagement where cities, urbanisation, and specific aspects of automotive, maritime and aviation issues are addressed.

International Transport Forum (ITF)

The Department leads Australia’s engagement with the International Transport Forum (ITF), which is administratively integrated into the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). The ITF delivers transport research and policy analysis for its 59 member countries and organises an annual Summit for Transport Ministers, industry and researchers to share and profile its work and developments in members’ transport sectors.
