The Transportation Working Group (TPTWG) aims to achieve the liberalisation of transportation services and works to enhance the safety of APEC transport systems to encourage economic development in the Asia-Pacific region. It aims to balance security, safety and environmental requirements with trade facilitation and its efforts are focused on: the facilitation of domestic policy regulations; the development of intermodal supply chains and secure transport activity; the integration of Corporate Social Responsibility; and building the capacity of all stakeholders to help them reach the eventual goal of free and open trade. The efficient and safe transportation of goods and people is key to APEC’s goal of free and open trade in the Asia-Pacific region. The TPTWG has a clearly defined set of priority action areas, namely: aggressive road safety strategies, harmonization of security measures, and addressing greenhouse gas emissions from aviation, among others.
