For more than a decade World Bank and Korea Transport Institute have been cooperated in striving for developing and disseminating good policies on transport and logistics. Through diverse cooperative activities such as annual joint workshops, experts exchange, and capacity building programmes for developing countries, the two institutes have been mutually benefitted. Based on such successful a decade-long cooperation, the two institutes agreed to carry out joint researches in mutually interested topics and share the results with international societies.
Through intense internal discussion and close consultation between the two organizations, we selected three challenging issues such as expansion of electric vehicle supply, developing logistics clusters, and enhancing traffic safety through speed management. The three topics are in line with the sustainable development goals of the United Nation, and of highly interested from developing countries. Three research teams for each topics organized in WB and KOTI carried out studies in close cooperation for last one year. This report demonstrates the research results from the three research teams. Although three researches have different scheme and depth of analysis due to limit of data availability, they all tried to utilize experience of Korea.
This joint research is expected to be used as meaningful policy references for developing countries around the world. With this joint research, I wish the cooperation between the two institutes would be strengthened further and many joint researches on diverse topics would be followed.
