The Muscat Compact focuses on four key elements – talent, trade, environment and innovation. It spurs collective action and guides public-private collaboration at a local, national, regional and global level.
Governments from 25 countries came together to plan a course of action to achieve industry objectives and global goals, notably as set out in the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The Muscat Compact was presented during the closing session by Emil Kaikiyev, Minister in charge of Energy and Infrastructure of the Eurasian Economic Commission, who called for collaboration between the public and private sectors in taking transport, trade and mobility forward.
“The Muscat Compact is the beginning of a new proactive era for transport, where we act together to design our future and we start building it.”
Secretary general of IRU, Umberto de Pretto, added:
“This is a defining moment for the industry. We can’t predict the future, but we can forge our own destiny within it. The survival of the industry – of global prosperity – depends on it.”
Over 1,000 participants from more than 75 countries attended the three-day IRU World Congress in the Omani capital.
