To ensure our transport system helps New Zealand thrive, we need to be able to understand the past, take stock of the present and anticipate the future. We also need to improve communication about the research work that is available to assist the transport sector.
The Ministry of Transport, with its partner agencies the NZ Transport Agency, Maritime New Zealand and the Civil Aviation Authority, held a full-day conference on 19 November 2015. Along with Local Government NZ, the agencies presented on strategic policy projects and research work.
This was an opportunity to learn about what the Government transport agencies are doing in the areas of research, statistics, economics and forecasting/modelling.
The Associate Transport Minister, Hon Craig Foss, opened the conference.
The conference launched a new publication 25 years of New Zealand travel: New Zealand household travel 1989-2014 [PDF, 8.5 MB] and the draft Transport Research Strategy.
Over 160 delegates attended the conference from a wide variety of public and private sector organisations.
