1. Overview

 The World Road Congress is held every 4 years, and 3,000 people from all over the world attended this congress. The unique characteristic of this congress is that the road management organizations from various nations including developing countries, attend the sessions and exhibition. The first congress was held in Paris in 1908 with 2,000 attendees. The theme was "The Road of The Future," and the biggest problem at that time was dust and accidents. The theme of this congress was "Roads and Mobility - Creating New Value from Transport," and the attendees from various countries exchanged opinions on road policies and new technology.
