This Global Mobility Summit is also called as MOVE, which will intend on steps to promote electric vehicles and shared mobility.
The summit is intended on five themes consisting comprehensive electrification and alternative fuels, reinventing public transport, goods transport and logistics and data analytics and mobility. The two-day summit is being organised by the government think-tank Niti Aayog.
Union Minister including Arun Jaitley, Piyush Goyal, Nitin Gadkari and Ravi Shankar Prasad are scheduled to attend the summit.
Niti Aayog’s Vice Chairman Rajiv Kumar said on Thursday that “with disruptions in the mobility sector, India will be able to generate more employment and enhance the ease of living for citizens in India”. Representatives of companies including Mahindra Electric, Hero Cycles, Tata Motors, Tata Power, Ola, Maruti Suzuki, Honda, Toyota, Bosch and Sun Mobility will participate in the summit. More than 2,200 participants from across the world including leaders from the government, industry, research organisations, academia, think tanks and civil society are expected to attend the event.
Niti Aayog’s CEO Amitabh Kant said that “the main aim through the summit is to revolutionize the way people travel in India, along with making mobility more connected, shared and seamless”. The Aayog held consultations with states ahead of the summit and a collection of state mobility strategies will be released at the conference. International representation from embassies and the private sector will include the United States of America, Japan, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, New Zealand, Austria, Germany, Brazil and more.
Considering to re-invite the public transport system, discussions will be held on transit planning and inter-model connectivity. The government is likely to reveal a “One Nation-One Card Policy” for public transport that will involve connectivity between the various modes of transport in the next three months. The Aayog has argued that the master plans of all cities must have cycling lanes.
