SINGAPORE: The Republic has won the bid to host the 26th Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) World Congress in 2019, announced the Land Transport Authority (LTA) in its news release on Friday (May 15).
The annual Congress is an international platform for government agencies, industry players and academic and research institutions to exchange information, share views and review the latest ITS products, services, plans, technological achievements and upcoming trends, said LTA.
It typically attracts about 5,000 participants worldwide, they added.
LTA’s chief Chew Men Leong said, “We are honoured to be chosen to host the ITS World Congress in 2019.
