The first 'Global NCAP World Congress' will be held in Delhi from September 26 – 29, 2018 by the Global NCAP in cooperation with the Institute of Road Traffic Education (IRTE).
The New Car Assessment Programmes (NCAPs) all over the world will be assembled to share the experience about personal CV safety rating. The Congress also offers a marvellous opportunity for reliable cars to contribute to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and Decade of Action for Road Safety.
Thanks to the Delhi Congress, specialists on road safety, fleet managers, car producers, and policymakers can discuss a global plan for car safety with each other in a formal manner. A primary subject of the Congress will be how NACPs across the world have managed to develop a market for reliable vehicles by informing customers to consider more carefully when they choose to buy a new car. Apart from that, some other topics of discussion in the meeting include the participation of NACPs like Latin America and South East Asia and their intervention in identical developing markets like Africa and India.
A highlight of the World Congress is going to be the introduction of the Stop the Crash campaign from India. In this introduction ceremony, lifesaving crash avoidance technologies such as Electronic Stability program will be live demonstrated. Global NCAP’s most recent crash test outcomes will also be published for the purpose of motivating India to develop safer vehicles.
The Congress will contribute to the India's development of safer vehicles
Commenting on the Congress, David Ward Global NCAP Secretary General stated that
“The first ever Global NCAP World Congress in Delhi marks an important opportunity to benchmark progress in vehicle safety worldwide. To build a global market for safety requires strong partnership between NCAPs and co-operation with industry and governments worldwide. We are grateful to the Institute for Road Traffic Education who will host the event and look forward to a very successful World Congress this September in Delhi.”
