Young Tae Kim is the Secretary General of the International Transport Forum (ITF), an intergovernmental organization of 59 countries and part of the OECD. Its mission is to ensure that public transport policies improve people’s lives and contribute to economic growth, environmental sustainability and social inclusion.

Prior to joining the ITF, Mr. Kim held senior positions in the Korean civil service, including as Director-General of Korea’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport (MOLIT). He was responsible for coordinating transport policies, including reducing greenhouse gas emissions, intelligent transportation systems and road safety.

In order to help 59 countries work together, Young Tae Kim can count on his perfect fluency in Korean, English and French and some Spanish as well. As new initiatives like autonomous vehicles, smart cities, greenhouse gas reduction or data sharing become more important with each passing day, effective regulatory frameworks will play a vital role in transforming dreams into reality.

“ It is now time to draw more member countries from non-European countries to make the organization a truly interactive system ”
