The NVF and PIARC signed a Memorandum of Understanding in 2010, which replaces the earlier MoU from 1996 and its revision in 2002. The aim of the MoU is to promote cooperation between the associations in their respective activities and to reaffirm the NVF’s commitment for the secondment of a Nordic technical adviser (from Finland, Norway or Sweden) to PIARC’s secretariat in Paris.
This cooperation gives the NVF and the Nordic countries a salient position within PIARC and the opportunity to influence developments in the road sector so that Nordic interests and priorities are taken into consideration.
The NVF coordinates proposals for Nordic chairs and secretaries in PIARC technical committees and for Nordic members in PIARC commissions. Members of PIARC technical committees are appointed by the individual member countries.
