As stated in our constitution, the overall purpose of GTPF is to promote research related to transportation polices and the planning, design, construction, operations, and maintenance of physical infrastructure of the transportation system in Ghana. To this end, the organization seeks to (1) provide leadership in the development of sustainable solutions to transportation-related issues in Ghana towards promoting long-term economic growth; (2) provide a global platform for public expression and knowledge exchange; promote creative collaborations with public and private leaders, agencies, communities and professionals regarding transportation-related issues; (3) provide leadership to influence national policy discussions, development and implementations in transportation-related developments and the built-environment that will improve public health and safety, protect the environment, and strengthen security and the economy; and (4) encourage teams of expertise and professionals from private/public sectors and academia to actively engage in research that will yield technologies and insights leading to innovations in effective utilization of resources.

As such, we seek to actively partner with organizations in Ghana to organize conferences, seminars, and workshops related to transportation development in Ghana. These organizations include the Ghana Institution of Engineers, the Ministry of Roads and Highways, the Ministry of Transport and Communications, the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development, and the Ministry of Environment, Science, Technology, and Innovation.
