Dear Distinguished ATRANS Conference Participant,
On behalf of ATRANS Conference Organizing Committee, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to you for
joining our 16th ATRANS Annual Conference on Transportation for a Better Life: Transforming Towards Decarbonization,
Safety, and Sustainability,” took place on 1 September at the Chatrium Grand Bangkok Hotel. We appreciate you
We certainly hope that the conference has been all that you expected it to be such as for discussion and exchange
of many experiences, suggestions, and opinions with decisions makers, practitioners and researchers from ASEAN
countries and beyond. We also hope that you have taken the opportunity to make new friends and renew old acquaintances
in this gathering.
We have been very fortunate to have a group of well-known experts in their respective fields participated in our conference.
This group includes Professors, Doctors, Executive Chairman, Directors, Managers, Researchers, Consultants, Board Members
and Regular Members, as well as the other key agencies from public and private sectors for instance, MOT, MOI, MOST, MOPH,
NESDC, NSTDA, Japanese Embassy, UNESCAP, WHO, JICA, TDRI, HONDA, AIT, and universities from domestic and from ASEAN
neighboring countries. Their involvement resulted in a success of both the conference and the attached program of AYRF
paper presentation sessions as well as the poster sessions.
When planning an event such as this, it is imperative to gain the participation of the experts from multidisciplinary fields.
Your willingness to support and join the conference was critical to the success of this event. The conference was not meant
to be a single event, but a starting point for the work that must be done to mitigate the problems to make “Transportation
for a Better Life.”
We are in the process of collecting the pictures taken at the conference event. They will soon be available for downloading
in a week. You can find the conference picturesque activity in our ATRANS Facebook by following the link
I wish you the very best of luck and success in your career and I am looking forward to your participation and support again in
the next ATRANS Annual Conference in 2024.
