Asia Pacific CTE (Singapore)

Opened in partnership with the Singapore Land Transport Authority (LTA) in August 2012, the Asia Pacific CTE is an all-encompassing centre for land transport experts, particularly in the public transport and sustainable mobility domains.

Located within the LTA Academy, the centre also provides training and support to land transport administrations and practitioners in the Asia-Pacific region.

One of the key initiatives of the CTE has been the launch of the biennial LTA-UITP Singapore International Transport Congress and Exhibition (SITCE), the first edition of which was held in 2013. The international congress, jointly organised by LTA and UITP, combines the World Urban Transport Leaders Summit (WUTLS), World Roads Conference (WRC) and World Urban Transit Conference (WUTC), organised by LTA, with the series of Asia Pacific Congresses, organised by UITP.
