An important initiative of REAAA has been the establishment of regular meetings of Heads of Road Authorities (HORA) in the region. The HORA meeting has become an annual affair.
Seven such meetings have been held since 2002, with the inaugural meeting in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the second in Cairns, Australia, third in Manila, Philippines, fourth in Bangkok, Thailand, fifth in Manila, the Philippines, sixth in Gyeonggi-do, Korea and the seventh in Tokyo, Japan. The 8th HORA meeting is scheduled to be held in Korea in 2009.
Objectives of Organising the HORA Meeting.
It is to provide a forum for Heads of Road Authorities, HORAs from Asia and Australasia (on national level) to interact actively with each other with the hope to achieve the objectives of:
|•||Establishing a network of professionals with common interest|
|•||Sharing knowledge and experiences|
|•||Searching for solutions for problems on common issues in roads development|
|•||Creating a focal point for exchange of ideas related to road engineering and its development|
