The 34th biennial The Fédération Internationale des Sociétés d’Ingénieurs des Techniques de l’Automobile (FISITA)World Automotive Congress was held at China National Convention in Beijing from November 27th to 30th, 2012. Over 2000 engineers, scientists and managers associated with the automotive industry from around 40 different countries congregated to discuss future of automobiles and technology being developed on parallel lines. The theme of the convention was “Automobiles and Mobility in a Low Carbon Economy – China and the World”.
The basic premise of this convention was the critical need for a new technology to take care of mobility demands in the auto sector while keeping these advancements affordable, and at the same time taking into account fuel quality tolerance, rural infrastructure and urban congestion.
FISITA or Fédération Internationale des Sociétés d’Ingénieurs des Techniques de l’Automobile came into being over 60 years ago with the sole purpose of bringing engineering talent from across the globe together on a common platform to share and participate in bringing about advances in technological development in the auto industry to bring about better, cleaner, cheaper and for efficient expansion in this ever growing sector.
