ince 2008, the Annual Summit of Transport Ministers organised by the International Transport Forum at the OECD has become a fixture for policy makers, business leaders, and top academics around the world. From 22-24 May 2013 the global transport community met in Leipzig, Germany for a productive debate on ways out of transport’s strategic dilemma of funding, caused by rapidly growing demand and ever-tighter budgets.This booklet provides a visual recap of the Summit that I hope you will enjoy. A brochure summarising the substance of the discussions is also available.
