The Inaugural REAAA Mino Roadshow
It was held on August 25-27, 2008 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with a theme
Managing Road Assets for Community Outcomes.
50 delegates from 14 countries in the Asia and Pacific countries attended the three-day workshop. The event has been a resounding success.
The subject matter combining asset management and road safety issues in a single forum was a unique experience for many delegates exposing them to areas which would normally be considered beyond their operational responsibility. Participants benefited by exposure to these topics and the ensuing discussion and feedback sessions.
The event was sponsored by Global Transport Knowledge Partnership (gTKP) and organised and delivered by ARRB Group in association with the REAAA Secretariat, Malaysia, with support from AusAID, and additional sponsorship from the participating countries, private industry and donor agencies
It is intended that future REAAA Mino Roadshows will be conducted on a regular basis at selected locations throughout the region, covering a range of selected topics.
