Our CEO, Jacob Bangsgaard, met with a number of high-profile Chinese companies and authorities during a week-long visit to China to foster closer relations between European and Chinese ITS actors.

Relations with Chinese ITS stakeholders are of great importance to the ERTICO partnership, especially as Europe and China share a great deal of interest in a number of key topics such as connectivity, automation and new mobility services. In these areas in particular we believe there are many opportunities for increased cooperation and knowledge-sharing.
