Since the first World Road Congress held in Paris in 1908, PIARC has organized Congresses every four years in a member country with the aim of sharing worldwide techniques, innovations, political strategies, trends and developments, best practices and experiences in the fields of road, infrastructures and transport between Ministers, governments, private sector, road and transport administrations and organizations, academics, solutions’ providers, experts and practitioners from more than 120 countries across the planet.
In line with PIARC´s vision to be the world leader in the exchange of knowledge on roads and road transport policy and practices within the context of integrated, sustainable transport, PIARC´s four key missions are:
- Be a leading international forum for analysis and discussion of the full spectrum of transport issues related to roads and related transport
- Identify, develop, and disseminate best practice and give better access to international information
- Consider fully within our activities the needs of developing countries and countries in transition
- Design, produce, and promote efficient tools for decision making on matters related to roads and related transport
