The National Transport Development Programme (NTDP) is a planning framework that integrates the economic, organisational, institutional and other activities (actions, tasks, types of activities) into one system. It is worked out for a 15-year period (in two phases from 1996-2000 and 2001-2010).
In order to solve the problems associated with the development of each transport sector (e.g. roads, road transport, sea transport, railways transport, air transport, road safety), separate development programmes by sector have been established.
The key goal of the National Transport Development Programme is to ensure the planned development of an efficient transport system in order to satisfy the constantly growing demand of the national economy and people for quantitative and qualitative transport that provides safety and reliability at reasonable cost.
The Latvian government has elaborated the NTDP in recognition that a modern transport system is of exceptional national importance.
