The road transport forum was organized by the National Assembly Defense and Security Committee, in collaboration with the Office of the National Assembly, the Hanns Seidel Foundation.
Participants reviewed Vietnam's road transport planning policies and plans, as well as scientific and technological applications in the sector.
According to a World Bank expert, Vietnam extended its road transport network from more than 223000 km in 2004 to some 668000 km in 2018 including more than 900 km of highways.
The expert, however, pointed out the limitations of the system, such as congestion on ring roads and international gateways, overloaded vehicles and the limited budget for regular maintenance.
The forum also looked at environmental pollution and the impact of climate change on road transport, and the development of road transport in relation to river and air transport.
