PIARC

World Road Association (PIARC)

The World Road Association (PIARC), established in 1909, is the leading international association to foster and facilitate global discussion and knowledge sharing on roads and road transport. With more than a 100-year history, the association brings together governments from worldwide as well as local authorities, collective members and individual members. With the vision of “exchanging knowledge on the roads and road transport policy and practices within an integrated sustainable transport context”, the World Road Association has contributed significantly to developing the world’s road transport sector by providing a platform for technology exchanges and discussions on road transport policies, technologies and the best practices of member countries.

Korean National Committee

Since 1996, the Republic of Korea has been participating in the World Road Association (PIARC) as a national member. As the importance for international cooperation for roads and road transport was increased, Korean National Committee was established in 2007 to foster Korean road construction and management as well as strengthen international partnerships.
