Our NGV Event 2012 in Mexico City is a great occasion for us all to introduce our activities in the most promising market in Latin America.
We all witnessed the great developments and achievements for the NGV market in South America in the past decades and are positive that Mexico represents the new promised land for Natural Gas Vehicles in North America, together with the United States.
NGV Global is committed in continuing the renewal process started by my predecessor, with a view to meet the new challenges of a rapidly growing market.
Indeed, following a full-day strategy development session held in Bologna, Italy recently, NGV Global’s Board has identified six key focus areas from which specific initiatives are currently being developed. The focus areas include: Governance and Coordination; Communications; Events, Outreach and Training; Technical Information and Partnerships.
Key considerations for these and the focus areas included meeting the needs of members as well as stakeholders outside of our direct membership who rely heavily on the information and activities of NGV Global and its affiliated and allied regional and national associations.
The NGV Global Board of Directors is currently developing the plan further to identify short and long-term initiatives to meet the industry demands. In the meantime though, a number of short-term objectives have been identified via an internal survey and are already being implemented. Most of these initiatives relate to communications, information and events, and efforts will be made to increase the detail and frequency of information brought to members and non-members alike. A key feature of all the initiatives will be achieving clarity with respect to the roles, responsibilities and areas of influence of the global, regional and national associations.
With our upcoming General Assembly to be held in Mexico City in conjunction with NGV Global 2012, our intention is to have the full strategic plan ratified by members at that time, in order to meet the industry needs for a wide-scale perspective for NGV’s.
Thank you for sharing our enthusiasm.
Gabriele Gozzi – President, NGV Global
