On the 16th November, The General Assembly will take place: a 1-day meeting where the association’s members will reflect on 2017’s achievements as well as outlining a vision for 2018.
5GAA is honoured to welcome illustrious representatives from Public Institutes to participate in the Asia Pacific Roundtable discussion on Thursday, 16 November 2017.

Following the Roundtable discussion and in order to gain a greater practical understanding of the transportation advances in China, 5GAA will visit the Shanghai Testbed with a live demonstration of the power of LTE-V2X and 5G-V2X technology in transport.
Chairman of 5GAA, Christoph Voigt, underlines the importance of choosing China as the location for the Second General Assembly: “We are looking forward to further understanding the progress China can offer to advance 5G transport solutions globally. China is a strong supporter of deepening 5G connectivity to deliver safety and sustainability solutions on our roads. Our discussions with representatives from political and academic institutions in China will offer us an opportunity to gain support around the World and to innovate further, faster and more effectively.”
