Invitations have been sent to transportation industry experts around the world to attend the second United Nations Global Sustainable Transport Conference, the Ministry of Transport said on Thursday.

Sun Wenjian, a spokesman for the ministry, said China maintains close communications with the UN. He also noted that so far, all preparation work has gone smoothly. "Leaders from the ministry have sent out invitations to foreign counterparts while attending international events recently," he said.

The conference, initiated by the UN and organized by the Chinese government, will take place from Oct 14-16 in Beijing.

According to Sun, the meeting will include both online and offline events and will be a great opportunity for industry insiders to exchange ideas about how to support sustainable transportation growth to achieve goals set by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement on climate change.

The first such conference was held on Nov 26 and 27, 2016, in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan.
