ASECAP was invited by EU Commissioner Violetta Bulc to participate in the Annual Informal presidential Council meeting that took place in Valletta, Malta, on 29-30 March 2017 with Road Safety as the theme of this high-level EU conference.

This very important two-day event allowed both parts, states and industry, to contact each other, under the EC umbrella, and present their thoughts, concerns, priorities, visions and planned actions in the road safety sphere.

The ASECAP Secretariat was present, together with ASFA – our COPER II Chair Malika Seddi - and AISCAT - our COPER II vice chair Emanuela Stocchi.

The first day was devoted the industrial sector where around 200 key sectors had the opportunity to present how they see the future road safety priorities. There was a strong competition of ideas, visions and plans among the stakeholders regarding the future priorities.

The ASECAP Secretariat is very proud that among the “competitors stakeholders” competing in front of all the key personalities (J. Mizzi, Maltese Minister of Transport acting as Council president, the envoy of the UN Secretary General and of course Commissioner V. Bulc),  ASECAP and its ideas/proposals came first leading a team of other stakeholders.

ASECAP COPER II chair Malika Seddi has performed an outstanding job and our ASECAP message was voted as the best.

Our key points voted as the crucial safety factors were the following:

  • the role of infrastructure in road safety;
  • the role of a road safety integrated approach;
  • the role of safety enforcement and
  • the role of financing.

The messages of the industry were gathered and presented the next day in front of the informal Council of Ministers who approved politically the key road safety priorities that will be addressed in the future.

The road safety messages are included in a political Road safety manifesto to be presented as the Valletta Declaration.
