VTA confirms latest key note speaker for State Conference

The Victorian Transport Association (VTA) has secured Transport Accident Commission Minister as the latest speaker to address attendees at its State Conference in March.

Minister Roads, Road Safety and TAC Jaala Pulford is set to open the second day of the event.

Re-elected as the Member for Western Victoria in last November’s state election, Pulford  was re-appointed to Cabinet by premier Daniel Andrews.

Previously she served as Minister for Agricultural and Regional Development.

Her announcement as a speaker was welcomed by VTA CEO Peter Anderson who said the delegates in attendance would benefit from hearing about the Andrews Labor Government’s vision for the state’s road network and road safety.

“In the short time since the Victorian election I’ve had the opportunity to represent the VTA in meetings with Minister Pulford on many occasions and have found her to be open, collaborative and genuinely interested in the freight and logistics industry,” he said.

“Minister Pulford understands the issues confronting freight operators and I’ve been impressed with her positive attitude and willingness to engage with the industry on a range of matters. We appreciate the time she has made to attend the conference and meet with our members,” said Anderson.

The VTA confirmed it was close to finalising the full list of around 35 speakers from government, regulators, operators and suppliers to address the conference.

Other senior leaders from the Commonwealth and Victorian government and opposition to attend and address the event will include Michael McCormack Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Regional Development, Glenn Sterle, Shadow Federal Assistant Minister Road Safety Senator, and David Davis, Victorian Shadow Minister Transport Infrastructure.
