The FHWA Office of International Programs, in cooperation with Australia's National Transport Commission (NTC), organizes regular webinars and teleconferences on topics of mutual interest. Primarily, the focus of the webinars has been on freight-related issues. In 2014, an Implementing Agreement between FHWA and NTC was signed and extended the umbrella of topic areas to be considered. Most recently, we are working with our colleagues at NTC to include additional topic areas of interest outside of Freight into our webinar list, including topics such as public private partnerships (PPP's.)
A synthesis report was produced that will serve as an official record of the exchanges engaged in by the FHWA, NTC and the other participating stakeholders. In addition to determining the FHWA'S and the NTC's common strategic interests (both present and future), it also documents insightful connections and ways to move forward in the cooperation.
