Transport ministry plays host to green logistics conference

Officials from the Ministry of Public Works and Transport attended the 4th Green Logistics Partnership Conference 2022 to discuss and share experiences formulating environmentally friendly policies and implementing them, talk about challenges related to the green logistics sector and work on developing goals and action plans to improve the logistics sector in the ASEAN region.

The ministry said that the meeting was held at the ministry's headquarters on November 4, with Chhieng Pich, director of the ministry's General Department of Logistics leading the conference.

Joining him at the meeting in person and virtually were officials from the ASEAN secretariat, envoys from development partners, representatives from other relevant ministries and institutions and logistics consultants from Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism and officials from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Japan Institute of Logistics Systems, as well as executives from private sector companies and associations.

According to the ministry’s press statement, green logistics play an important role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, which is necessary to reduce climate change. Climate change involves many sectors of the economy in every country on the planet, which requires the public and private sectors to work together to solve the problem effectively and responsibly.

Pich noted that the conference was productive with active participation in discussions and sharing of experiences and good practices and officials came away with key recommendations on green policies that will help with reducing environmental impacts, improve productivity and address social issues all at the same time.

The ministry noted that the attendees learned a lot about how to manage logistics activities in a green way, and were especially impressed with Japan’s presentation of the master plan for its comprehensive logistics policy, which provides a specific roadmap to facilitate logistics with minimal environmental harm.
