Transport and Communications Bulletin for Asia and the Pacific (Status: 23/09/2013)
The Transport and Communications Bulletin for Asia and the Pacific is a peer-reviewed journal published by the Transport Division of UNited Nations ESCAP (ECAFE until 1974) since 1950. It is an important source of information on transport development and issues in the region.
The format of the Bulletin has changed over the years. In particular, it should be noted that information on large-scale infrastructure projects and statistical data has been published in a separate biannual publication since 1993, the Review of Developments in Transport in Asia and the Pacific. Since the 1990s, each volume of the Bulletin focuses on a particular theme of interest in the transport sector.
