Intelligent Transport Systems: Commissioner Bulc opens World Congress

Date: 13/11/2015

On Monday 5 October EU Transport Commissioner Violeta Bulc opened the 22nd World Congress on intelligent transport systems (ITS) in Bordeaux. ITS covers the application of information and communication technologies to the transport sector, for example for traffic management.

Commissioner Bulc said: "By optimising the use of the transport infrastructure, ITS can contribute to the decarbonisation objectives of the Commission. They also provide business and export opportunities for European companies, thereby creating jobs and strengthening the global competitiveness of the EU, which is our top priority."

Besides the opening ceremony, Commissioner Bulc attended a Ministerial Roundtable discussing how to further promote ITS, and met promoters of ITS projects benefiting from EU funding.
