From the Chairman

On behalf of the IRF’s global volunteer leadership and members, it gives me great pleasure to invite you to the 2nd IRF Asia Regional Congress & Exhibition. With this Congress, our goal is to help policy-makers, planners and infrastructure operators from across Asia build a resilient and sustainable road and transport infrastructure that can drive economic growth and prosperity in the region.

As with past IRF congresses, the IRF, in cooperation with the Road Engineering Association of Malaysia (REAM), will bring together the world’s top practitioners, thought leaders and academics with the sole purpose of discussing road infrastructure solutions that are safe, sustainable and lead to economic growth.

We have chosen Malaysia as the host of the 2nd edition of this Congress due to its advanced road network, progressive road policies and its position as one the primary growth engines of the ASEAN.

On this note, I invite all stakeholders from across the region to attend this landmark road and transport sector event.

Eng. Abdullah A. Al-Mogbel IRF Chairman
