As the Belgian National Committee of the World Road Association (PIARC), the Belgian Road Association (ABR-BWV) is very pleased to inform you that its secretary Claude Van Rooten, who is also the director general of the Belgian Road Research Centre, was appointed as Honorary Member of PIARC during the annual meeting of its Council in Rome on 7th November 2013.

This title is a reward for eight years of work in the Executive Committee of the World Road Association (from 2005 to 2012) and also eight years in the Communications Commission, including four years in the Chair (from 2005 to 2008).

The Council also emphasized the remarkable dedication and great leadership shown by Claude Van Rooten, which had driven him for many years in several initiatives to promote PIARC. The members attending also reminded his commitment to the Association, which had actually led him to apply for the PIARC Presidency in 2012.
