Dear ITA Friends

The World Tunnel Congress 2018 in Dubai was successful and all the beneficial consequences for the industry are all yet to come. For the first time this important event was held in the Middle East. The region presented a very significant increase in output in the last ITA market survey. I am sure the networking during the WTC will bring further positive consequences.

The organization of next ITA Tunnelling Awards is going well. The event will take place in Chuzhou-Nanjing, China, at the heart of the most important global tunneling market. The Awards event has been consolidated not only for celebrating success and proving that tunneling can be reliable, but also for attracting a different type of public. The presence of contractors has been significant, and this is good news. They represent a strong segment of our market and their number in the WTCs has not matched their importance yet.

Implementation of the new strategic plan is well underway. Attention is given at this stage not only to new actions but also to monitoring the positive impacts of previous and current ITA initiatives. We plan to see effective activities with funding agencies with respect to training in tunneling, more active Member Nations and closer relationship with the industry. By the way, I want to welcome Nick Chittenden as the new ITAtech Chair.  - Tarcisio Celestino
