Shanghai's Tongji University hosted the 10th International Sustainable Urban Transport System Forum on Nov 18.

More than 70 participants from China, France, Austria and Vietnam, from government figures and enterprise representatives to experts in urban planning, public transportation, and energy and environment, attended the forum.

Discussing mobility and governance for new urbanization, the forum featured lectures and round-table discussions on three major topics: City and Community, New Model of Public Transportation, and Transportation Innovation.

Li Xining, technical director of the renowned Chinese locomotive maker CRRC Zhuzhou Institute, and Michel Rostagnat, an official from the French Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy, delivered keynote speeches.

Representatives from bicycle-sharing giant, Mobike, also shared their ideas on the future of urban transportation.

Established in 2008, the annual forum has taken place in Shanghai, Shenzhen and Paris, originally with Chinese and French participants but it now involves attendees from Vietnam, Germany, Japan and the United States.
